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.
Soaps and flannels
Toothbrush and toothpaste
Pencils, pens, rubbers, pencil sharpeners
Small toys ie cars, balls, games
Hats, gloves and scarves
Hairbrushes, combs, hairbands
For home boxes:
Toiletries (soaps, flannels)
Headscarves for adults
Socks/underwear for adults
Cooking utensils (not knives)
Small decorative items/Christmas decorations
Every item donated will be very gratefully received by the families. Thank you.
