Remember when you were a kid and you would fill shoeboxes with little presents and send them other kids abroad for Christmas? Well, we’re asking you to do the same for people a lot closer to home.

Shoebox Full Of Love does exactly what it says on the box; fill a shoebox full of little presents and these guys will distribute them around Merseyside to homeless people, veterans and families who have fallen on hard times. You can even pop a card in there to pass on a little message. The idea started last year and went viral in the city and they’re gearing up for a bigger and better year but they need you, and you to help it get there.


Sound good? Well it’s about to get a lot easier, and tastier. Maguire’s Pizza Bar and Evil Eye – Beer & Burrito Shack have teamed up with Shoebox Full of Love Homeless Appeal to bring you back to back weekends of tasty awesomeness – and all you need is a shoebox filled with goodies. On Sunday 29th November head down to Evil Eye, on Smithdown Road, and you can swap a shoebox for a £1 burrito all day. The gesture can warm your heart and the burrito can warm your stomach. On Saturday 5th December head to Maguire’s Pizza Bar, on Renshaw Street, to swap a shoebox for a £1 pizza. The stuff dreams are made of.


Both days are going to be amazing and a reminder that it’s nice to be nice. If you’re stuck for ideas, head to their Facebook page here. Join the Facebook events page here to keep up with all info about the two days.
