Once again we are supporting this scheme. Details are below and on this website. Mrs Greene will hold an assembly on Monday with the children. Please send in your items and Year 6 will pack them at school. If you would like your own box. please request one from the Office.

Boxes can be filled with:

·         Toys such as ‘Matchbox’ type toy cars, small bouncy balls, jigsaws, fluffy toys, dolls, colouring books, felt tip pens, Lego, yoyo’s, bubble blow, etc.

 

·         The type of contents are indicated on the box top. In the case of toys, additional information as to the suitability for boy or girl, along with age group is also indicated. A card with the senders name and address, along with a photograph is also a nice thing to include.

 

·         Teenagers- Please remember boxes for teenage boys and girls up to the age of 18. Such as: make-up, toiletries, sportswear, scarf, gloves, hat, writing materials, deodorants, comb, mirror, football memorabilia, etc

 

·         Household Goods such as hand soap, toothpaste and brushes, envelopes, letter paper, biro pens, etc.
Toys are especially appreciated, since these boxes can be used for birthday gifts.
This box is also good for older folk, especially if a warm scarf or a pair of gloves is included.

 

·         Please do not mix the contents of the boxes since this makes distribution difficult.

 

·         Above all, the contents should be of good quality, remembering that the recipient will be opening the box in eager anticipation, and especially with the toys for the children, quite possibly the first real gifts they have received for as very long time.
