Road of Hope Shoe Box Appeal

"Not all of us can do great things, but we can all do small things with great love" - Mother Theresa

We are continuing to work with Road of Hope and taking part in the Shoebox Appeal this year after its excellent 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. 

Children can start bringing in their shoeboxes from Tuesday 1st October onwards. All shoeboxes are to be delivered to school by Wednesday 23rd October 2019. Shoeboxes can be left in the main foyer of the school. 

How to pack a shoebox?

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?

Wash - Soap, face cloth, sponge, toothbrush, toothpaste.

Write - Pencils, pens, sharpener, notebook, small colouring book.

Wear - Hat, scarf, gloves, socks, new underwear, hair accessories, jewellery.

Play - Cars, doll, ball, skipping rope, travel games, dominoes, recorder, harmonica, playing cards.

Cuddle - Small cuddly toy
