Hassocks and Haywards Heath residents have donated more than 50 gift-filled shoeboxes to a festive present collection for children worldwide.

Over the last few weeks, boxes have been brought to the sales and marketing suites at Barratt Homes’ Saxon Mills and Wychwood Park developments.

The housebuilder, which opened its marketing suites up to be used as drop-off points for Operation Christmas Child, has now sent the shoeboxes on to be opened on Christmas Day by less fortunate children across the world.

Lynnette St-Quintin, sales and marketing director for Barratt Southern Counties, said: “Thank you to everyone who brought a Christmas shoebox along to either Saxon Mills or Wychwood Park in the last few weeks.

“Hopefully these generous contributions will go a little way to bring a bit of Christmas cheer to children in other parts of the world.”

This is the fifth year that Barratt has opened up its marketing suites for Operation Christmas Child.
