The West Morland Gazette: Boxes of hope delivered to Romania’s children

THOUSANDS of gift-filled shoeboxes have been safely delivered to impoverished Romanian children in time for Christmas.

Kendal father-of-two Jonathan Robb was among the party of seven volunteers from Cumbrian charity Boxes of Hope who drove right across the Eastern European country handing out parcels. Their journey took them from the Hungarian border in the west to Moldova in the east, a six-hour drive over mountains in a mini van and trailer.


The volunteers handed out 8,000 of the 10,133 gift-filled shoeboxes made up by generous folk throughout South Lakeland, together with hand-knitted and crocheted clothing to keep babies and children warm in temperatures of -10C or colder.
