A Christmas campaign to send shoeboxes full of presents to children in developing and war-torn countries has been launched by Regus.
The appeal is run in conjunction with Samaritan's Purse charity and asks for people to fill the boxes with toys, educational supplies, sweets, hygiene products and small items of clothing.
The shoeboxes can be dropped off at all 220 Regus centres across the UK, until Monday, November 18, between 9am-5pm.
Steve Purdy, managing director at Regus, comments: "The shoebox appeal is easy, fun to take part in, and brings incredible joy to children who are in real poverty."
The boxes can be donated in Maidenhead at the office in The Broadway.
In Slough, there are centres in Bath Road and Stoke Road.
Three offices in Windsor will act as drop-off points, in Orchard Lea, Thames Street and Victoria Street.
