A Much Hoole-based charity helped people get into the festive spirit with a special workshop for its Christmas shoe box appeal.
Julie Rowlandson, community ambassador, hosted the event at the International Aid Trust's warehouse in Longton Business Park, Station Road.
The charity is inviting people to fill shoe boxes with gifts for children and adults living in poverty abroad.
Julie gave a fascinating talk about the charity's work during the workshop and showcased the types of items that could be gifted.
She said: "We are making shoe box gifts to go to people who have very little, mainly in other countries, so we've been wrapping boxes and packing them with lots of lovely things that they might like."
