Hurricane Irma and Maria have devastated the lives of families and children across the Caribbean this year.

Nottinghamshire Police are supporting the Christmas shoebox appeal for the children most affected in the area.

In most areas there is no electricity, roofs are leaking and water is available from bowsers.

If you want to get involved, please be quick as there is a tight deadline to ensure the gifts can reach their destination.

Please mark your box with your chosen age range (2-4 years-old / 5-7 years-old / 8-10 years-old / 11-14 years-old) and if the box is suitable for a boy or a girl.

Then pack a shoebox sized box and deliver it to Nottinghamshire Police Federation Office (1 North Lodge, Arnold, NG5 8PN) by 5pm Friday 17 November 2017.

The boxes can include cuddly toys, dolls, toy cars and books. Please do not wrap the box entirely, wrap the lid separately as there may be custom inspections on route.

For further details please contact PC Lisa Davies on 07738020982 or e-mail: ldavies@polfed.org

101 is the number to call when you need to contact Nottinghamshire Police and it’s less urgent than a 999 call. Calls cost 15p, no matter how long the call lasts.
