Shoebox appeal

Posted on Nov 3, 2015 in News

We are joining with the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal and would love you to join us as we send gifts to some of the world’s poorest children. Collection day is this Sunday – 8th November.

Just fill a shoebox with some small gifts and bring it along to Church this Sunday.


What can I put in my box?

Please put in a selection of small gifts from the options below: (but out of respect for the children we ask that all items be new, or good as new)

TO WRITE – Items for school – like a pen, pencil, copy book, paper, colouring book, felt pens, sharpener, eraser, solar calculator.

TO WASH – Some hygiene items – toothbrush and toothpaste, soap (wrapped please), facecloth, hairbrush, comb.

TO WEAR – Small clothing items – a hat, scarf, gloves, socks or underwear

WOW ! – A treat – sunglasses, game, small Irish gift, a photo of yourself, sweets (must be in date until at least March 2016), make up, a small musical instrument, toys like a doll, a car, cuddly toy, skipping rope, yo-yo, a finger puppet.

Please don’t put in …
Food (apart from sweets), chocolate, medicines of any kind, war related items, large clothing items, anything breakable, any liquids that could spill or freeze, sharp items, scary things (like halloween stuff, or skull and crossbones) or books with words.
