True spirit of Christmas is alive in goodwill shoeboxes
A fine example of the Christmas spirit is being demonstrated by shoe retailer Gavin Dunlop and his daughter Abby who have prepared some 80 shoeboxes full of goodies for distribution to homeless people in Belfast.
This has resulted from a Facebook appeal which drew a heart-warming response from people who have donated all kinds of items to fill the shoeboxes.
An added bonus for those who will receive these timely Christmas presents is the addition of "doggie" items, ensuring some added comfort for their pets on the streets with them. This small but special touch will go a long way to help those in need.
