Notts County Foundation and Sewa Day team up for Christmas appeal

Notts County Foundation is proud to have partnered with the Nottingham branch of Sewa Day in support of its Christmas shoebox appeal.

Sewa Day is a national charity that aims to support local communities through a range of social action projects, such as facilitating food banks, redistributing food to eliminate waste, combatting homelessness, and supporting local schools.

Sam Crawford, Head of Business Development at Notts County Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be working alongside Sewa Day Nottingham this Christmas to support the charity’s shoebox appeal. The ongoing pandemic has impacted everyone’s lives in one way or another, and it’s more important now than ever that we’re supporting one another when and wherever possible.”

People can donate items, including toys, toiletries, beanies, gloves, and other small gifts at the Portland Centre. Sewa Day will be collecting all donations on Saturday 11th December, with more than 1,000 shoeboxes being packed and wrapped at Edwalton Church Hall the following day, and then gifted to survivors of domestic violence, young carers, vulnerable people, and homeless individuals.

Hetvi Parekh, Lead Coordinator for Sewa Day Nottingham, said: “No act of kindness is ever wasted. Any donation, no matter how big or how small, will be really appreciated and help to spread joy in someone’s life on Christmas Day.”
