NUTWELL Lodge pub in Lympstone is supporting the Operation Christmas Child project by acting as a drop off point for people to hand in their gift filled shoeboxes.

Operation Christmas Child encourages people to fill a shoebox with gifts aimed at children aged two to 14.

The aim is to send a message of hope to children in desperate situations regardless of nationality, political background or religious beliefs.

Since its inception in 1990, the appeal has sent out gift filled shoeboxes to more than 60 million children.

General Managers of the Nutwell Lodge, Val Noble & Graham Williams said: "We're delighted to be supporting such a worthwhile campaign.

"We'll be doing everything we can to spread festive cheer and to put a smile on the faces of children in the most desperate situations around the world."

The boxes need to be completed by 18th November to allow time for transportation.
