Team Hope Christmas Shoe Box Appeal

 

The shoe box appeal leaflets are in the process of being sent home with the children, for those who wish to participate in this appeal.  It is by no means compulsory.

This year Team Hope have supplied us with pre-printed flat pack boxes for this purpose; however you may still use normal shoe boxes.  We will distribute one per family on Monday.

Please note that all filled shoe boxes must be returned to school by Wednesday 23rd October, as our local Team Hope collector has asked.  Any shoe boxes received after this date will be sent home again with the children for you to take to a collection point yourself.

Each classroom will store their own shoe boxes until the collection day.
