Children in poor parts of Europe receive presents from Evesham charity

Over 38,000 shoeboxes were collected and dispatched to Romania, Belarus, Ukraine and Bosnia from Teams4u, says

A team of volunteers from the Teams4u Evesham warehouse have just returned from distributing shoeboxes filled with gifts collected from schools, churches and other groups in Worcestershire, Warwickshire, Gloucestershire and Oxfordshire.
