The shoeboxes, put together by members of the public, local businesses, schools and churches, contained everything from sweets and toys to toothbrushes and colouring books. Regus, the global workplace provider, was involved in the appeal with the company's 220 UK centres collecting more than 5000 shoeboxes between them.
