Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal

A message of thank you from the Team Hope team:

Team Hope Thank you

Knock National School sent 30 shoeboxes, along with some online donations.

Hi all, a very sincere thank you to everyone from your schools and communities who supported this year’s appeal. It was an amazing success. On Thursday evening last, 197 cartons containing 1769 shoeboxes were loaded onto a truck from our Checking Centre in Ballinrobe. They are now on their way to where 1769 excited children in Timisoara, Romania will enjoy their presents at Christmas. Best wishes for a Happy and Peaceful Christmas to you all and your families.
