Every night, after a busy day in the warehouse, it is someone's job to keep count of what boxes have been filled.

Joyce said: "Throughout the year, I visit community groups and talk to them about Operation Christmas Child. I tell them about our shoe box appeal and invite them to get involved."

"Some of the children who will receive a shoe box will never have received a present like this. It will be filled with lovely things like toys, paper and pencils, gloves and toothpaste.

It's also a sorting area for donations which don't come in a box and a packing zone, where volunteers sort through sacks of stock and fill more.

Festive boxes from Derby's Operation Christmas Child let children know they have not been forgotten

The mill has been loaned to the charity this month and will act as a drop off point for groups and organisations who have spent the last year filling shoe boxes with gifts.

A truck will arrive at the mill and another batch of busy helpers will load it.

"They are an amazing bunch of people. They don't stop until every single box is on board. Last year, I just stood there open mouthed as the strong lads made very light work of the very hard job.

"You can pack a box for a boy aged 2 4, 5 9, or 10 14 and the same guide applies for a girl."

All the shoe boxes will leave Derby at the beginning of December.

Volunteer Anne Strong, 62, of Etwall, spends the year collecting items. She says she fills her garage with stock and, once the Darley Abbey Mill opens, she transports all her stuff there.

So far, boxes have come in from All Saints Church in Mickleover, St Barnabas Church, Derby, church and community groups in Ashbourne, St Wystan's School in Repton, Breadsall Primary School, Mickleover Primary School and Turnditch C of E Primary School.

"We give them a leaflet as a guide to what we would like.

"People can choose whether to pack for a boy or a girl, and then they can choose an age range.

"People are so giving. It is always overwhelming to see people pulling together.
