disadvantaged youngsters across the world will receive a special gift this Christmas.

Big-hearted people have been dropping off present-filled shoeboxes at the Regus centres in Leeds and Harrogate in support of the firm’s Operation Christmas Child appeal.

The Yorkshire centres are part of a network of almost 300 Regus centres in the UK which together collected over 5,000 boxes.

Run in conjunction with the Samaritan’s Purse charity, the appeal involves filling shoeboxes with toys, sweets and other gifts to send to children overseas in refugee camps, orphanages and shelters.

Richard Morris, CEO of Regus in the UK, said: “We’re thrilled that our local network of Regus centres could help such a worthwhile cause by being collection points. We would like to thank all the businesses, schools, groups and individuals who brought in shoeboxes and made it a great success.”
