Shoebox Appeal

8th Oct 2022

We were delighted to welcome Sandra from The Shoebox Appeal back to visit our school during the week. The Shoebox Appeal is an Irish Charity that was set-up to provide a Christmas present to young children who otherwise wouldn't receive any present at Christmas time.   

Filling your 'Shoebox' is really easy - you basically need to put 4 items(in good or new condition) into a wrapped shoebox along with €4 for postal and packaging.  

The 4 items need to be something that you can;

  1. WRITE -Something to write with (e.g pens, pencils, colouring pencils, copybook, paper etc)
  2. WASH - Something to wash with (e.g. toothbrush toothpaste, facecloth, comb, soap, hairbrush etc )
  3. WEAR - Something to wear (e.g. hat, gloves, scarf, underwear, socks, flip flops etc)
  4. WOW ! - Something to go ‘wow’ at ! (e.g.sunglasses, sweets, make-up, yo-yo, ball, toys, doll, stickers etc )

Information leaflets have been given to the children to bring home.

The deadline for sending off the shoeboxes is Wednesday 9th November 2022.

It is a wonderful cause and a lovely way to make a difference to child's life at Christmas time.
Every single box received is very much appreciated!
