“Love Christmas” – shoe boxes for asylum seekers in local hotels

posted in: Blog | 0

“Love Christmas” – is a national campaign to share the joy of Christmas with friends and neighbours in the local community.

This year, members of churches in Luton are being invited to make up a shoe box or similar size bag for the Asylum Seekers in our local hotels. These will be distributed in the week before Christmas.

Those donating boxes are invited to decorate / wrap them but leave unsealed so the contents can be checked before they are distributed.

Suggestions for items to go into shoe boxes or Christmas bags –

Edible items

Christmas chocolate items

Chocolate Orange




Small games



Please avoid

– items with nuts.

– items containing alcohol

– Perishable items
