This year's Operation Christmas Child shoebox campaign is under way - with a drop-off location centre established at Windsor Leisure Centre in Stovell Road.
People are invited to fill their shoeboxes, which are sent to needy children throughout the world.
The boxes will go to Zambia, Belarus, Romania, Serbia and Ukraine. They can be obtained from schools, churches and community groups.
Toys, pens, pencils, notebooks, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, washcloths, hats, scarves and gloves can all be packed in a gift-wrapped shoebox. A small donation is required to cover shipping costs.
Call 07761 551262 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
More than 50 street parties are set to take place this weekend across the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead and the surrounding areas.
An independent report into a Conservative councillor has found a breach of the Royal Borough’s code of conduct in a document seen by the Advertiser.
