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.
For children: For home boxes:
Teddies/soft Toys Dish cloths/tea towels
Soaps and flannels Candles
Toothbrush and toothpaste Toiletries (soaps, flannels)

Every item donated will be very gratefully received by the families. Thank you.
