In the run-up to Christmas, Norland student Lucy Rainsford coordinated Norland’s contribution of 26 boxes filled with presents for children and families who are struggling around Christmas time. The boxes were donated to the charity Link to Hope, which sent over 800,000 shoeboxes to Eastern Europe last year. This year, the charity hopes to help more families in need.
