Year 9 Lead Academy Shoe Box Appeal

From now till mid-November we are going to be collecting for the Samaritan’s Purse, Operation Christmas Child appeal, where you are asked to fill a shoe box full of gifts to then be sent overseas to children, who without this generosity would receive nothing for Christmas.

We urge you to start collecting items NOW, as well as donating any unwanted shoe boxes or old Christmas wrapping paper.
All donations should be left with Mrs Marrs at the student services desk, where our year 9 Student Council will collect and organise on a weekly basis.

We are hoping to collect as many filled boxes as we can in order to support this amazing charity, but we need to start now, as the cut-off point for collection is 18th November.

Any donations would be greatly appreciated, along with any cash donations to go towards the £3 transportation cost for each box.
