Forum thinks outside box

MEMBERS of North Tyneside Disability Forum are ensuring that youngsters on the other side of the world have a happy Christmas.

The Shiremoor-based forum has been filling festive shoeboxes with donated presents as part of a Christmas appeal.

The forum’s Carol Blake said: “I am overwhelmed by the number of boxes the young people have managed to fill, thanks to family, friends, forum members and people from local groups who have helped.”
