Advantage packs 20,000 shoe boxes for Romania and Bosnia

Staff at Advantage Mortgage Services near Chester are pacing 20,000 shoebox gifts to send to orphans in Romania and Bosnia.

The boxes collected from children across the UK will be sent out in two giant trucks in time for Christmas, filled with sweets, toiletries, toys and messages of love.

Simon Maudslay, director at Advantage, says: “This is the third year Advantage has helped the children&#39s charity, 21st Century Child and the campaign gets bigger every year. It is good for the mortgage industry to give something back.

“The shoebox campaign also teaches our own children about giving.&#39
