This year our Worship Team have decided that they would once again like to support T4u, who try to make a difference to people’s lives by running a shoe box appeal each Christmas. We can do this by filling a shoe box with practical items as well as gifts which are then distributed to vulnerable children in Eastern Europe. The Worship Team have asked that we work together as a school family and each class bring in particular items to then be put together to make as many shoe boxes as we can.
Following our meeting we thought we would ask the children if they could bring in one item from the list allocated to their class as follows:
Reception – toothbrush and toothpaste, flannel and soap
Year 1 and Year 2 – Pencils, pens, felt tip pens, colouring pencils, rubbers, pencil sharpeners, notebooks
Year 3 and Year 4 – small cuddly toy, skipping rope, dominoes, plasticine, yoyo, small ball, small musical toy e.g. plastic recorder, castanets (often available in Poundland or similar pound stores).
Year 5 – hair brush, comb, hair bobbles/hair accessories
Year 6 – gloves, hats or mittens, socks & pants (not adults!)
We also need to send a donation of £2.50 per box towards the transport costs so if you would like to make a contribution towards this we would be very grateful. The shoeboxes need to be on their way before half term so that they will arrive in time for Christmas so please bring in your donations before Friday 18th October. This will then give the Worship Team members time to pack each box. If as a family you feel that you would like to donate a completed box yourself then please come and see Mrs Jackson or Mrs Hill for a leaflet.
