It’s time to start collecting for our annual Shoe-box Weekend. This year we are doing our shoe-boxes for a charity called Teams4u. This is a charity run by Dave Cooke, who originally started the shoe-box campaign back in 1990. 

Everything will be exactly the same except—joy of joys—we can send chocolate in our shoe-boxes!! Also, the charity sends ‘home’ boxes for families.

This is a very exciting change for St Chad's, and we would love for everyone to get involved. Below is a list of items we can include in our boxes.

For children:

Teddies/soft Toys
Soaps and flannels
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Drawing/writing books
Pencils, pens, rubbers, pencil sharpeners
Pencil cases
Small toys ie cars, balls, games
Hats, gloves and scarves
Hairbrushes, combs, hairbands

For home boxes:

Dishcloths/tea towels


Toiletries (soaps, flannels)

Headscarves for adults

Socks/underwear for adults


Cooking utensils (not knives)

Plastic bowls/cups

Small decorative items/Christmas decorations

Every item donated will be very gratefully received by the families. Thank you.
