A message from Rev Gary

A Message from Reverend Gary. -  Christmas ShoeBox Appeal 2020
 
This week,  you child would have hopefully brought home a shoe box leaflet for our Christmas Shoe Box Campaign.  Over the last couple of years,  our schools, churches and communities have sent over 600 boxes to families and children across Central and Eastern Europe with our love at Christmas via Teams4U.  This year will be different because of the pandemic -  as Christmas will be different and hard for the families in Moldova, Belarus and Romania that are scheduled to receive our shoeboxes this year. Think of the appreciation and thanks that will be received when a family or child gets your box. So, If you are able to pack up a shoe box,  with all the restrictions on us all, me included, as regards our ability to go shopping or our health or budget,  that would be great.  Please ensure any collected shoe boxes are returned to school by the FRIDAY 20th NOVEMBER.  It will be stored safely before arrangements are made by me to collect and get them to the charity for onward travel.  Please do not forget the donation towards travel costs where you can.  If you cannot find a shoebox -  here's an idea:  pack a Christmas Carrier Bag with what you would normally put in a decorated shoe box and bring that to school instead.  The charity will simply load your bag into any spare boxes they can get.  If you want to do a shoebox, but cannot,  you can sponsor a shoebox to be made up on your behalf.  Look at www.teams4u.com for further details.  This is a difficult year for all of us, but  let's try and continue to help others too. We do it so well and it is appreciated.  Take care and keep safe -  Rev Gary
