Since 2000 Petermans have provided the Fork Lift Trucks to “Operation Christmas Child

The Charity that collects donated shoeboxes filled with gifts and Christmas Cheer for under-privileged and orphaned children, suffers from Children In Need being promoted at the same time of year. Although CIN is a massive and well-supported national effort every year, it does suck the oxygen of publicity from equally worthwhile organisations.

 In supporting Operation Christmas Child, at the last count, we had lifted more than Half a Million Shoe Boxes – half a million smiles on the faces of children, who otherwise have very little to look forward to (as relatively little as that is) makes us very grateful to be part of the effort.
