The annual appeal is now underway, and you can drop off your shoebox(es) at St M’s – under the letter-rack in the hall lobby between 1st and 18th November inclusive; the boxes will be collected from St M’s on 21st November. You’re requested to fill a medium-size shoebox, and put a label on it indicating whether it’s for a boy or a girl, and in what age range (two to four years, five to nine, ten to fourteen).
Examples of what can go in include cuddly toy or doll (ensure there’s a CE lable on the item), toy truck, skipping rope, ball, puzzle, musical instrument,
school supplies, hygiene items, hat, gloves, scarf, hair accessories, child’s jewellery set, sweets (with a ‘best before’ date of at least March 2017). Please do not include used or damaged items, or war related items such as toy guns.
