Southsea Box Makes People's Day

Published: 15th April 2017 16:43

A mysterious benefactor is making people's day by hiding gifts to be found in the city every Friday.

The kind-hearted person responsible goes by the name of @SouthseaBox on Twitter. Each Friday, the person running the account tweets where people can find a 'Free Box Friday' full of goodies such as chocolates, toiletries and candles. Some of the places that the gifts have been found include Greens, Home Coffee and Smile Cafe. 

 A gift from @SouthseaBoxThe idea is a spin off from Free Art Friday where local artists hide pieces of art in the city that people can find and take home. 

Southsea Box said, "I just want people to enjoy them which is what has happened so far. They seem to be found by people who were having a bad day. In fact, one lady told us she was having a really good day when she found it so she gave it to someone who she knew needed a lift that day.

"I wanted to join in Free Art Friday but am not very arty so thought - what could I do? I am really good at shopping and buying presents for people so I thought 'how about buying presents for people I don't know'. That way I still get to shop and I can't resist a bargain. You can put such beautiful gifts together for just £10 or £15. I am good at packaging things too so they look fabulous."
