Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal
350 boxes donated by St Andrew's students
This year our students filled 350 shoeboxes for the Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal with 1SY being the form to fill the most boxes. This was a wonderful effort by the students and today, 28 November, a group of Transition Year students went to the warehouse to help sort the boxes into different age groups and to make sure that each box contained a selection of treats and practical necessities for their recipients. The boxes end up with street children, orphans, children in hospital, poor families, victims of war or other needy situations in Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Africa. As well as being a kind thing to do, much fun was had wrapping and filling the boxes.
