Road of Hope Shoe Box Appeal

It's nearly that time of year again...Ho Ho Ho! πŸŽ…πŸΌ 🀢🏼 🎁

We are continuing to work with Road of Hope and taking part in the shoebox appeal this year after its superb success in previous years. Road of Hope is a cross community charity that donates gift filled Christmas Shoeboxes to the desperately underprivileged in Eastern Europe. Last year, we donated over 100 shoeboxes and the charity donated 11,000 in total.

All shoeboxes are to be delivered to school by Tuesday 23rd October 2018. Shoeboxes can be left in the main foyer of the school.

Choose a shoe box - not a boot box
Paper lid and box separately
Secure with elastic band
DO NOT SEAL - customs may inspect

What should I send?
