Shoeboxes

T4U logoIt’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)
Drawing/writing books                                   Headscarves for adults
Pencils, pens, rubbers, pencil sharpeners,         Socks/underwear for adults
Pencil cases                                                  Pegs
Sweets                                                         Cooking utensils (not knives)
Small toys ie cars, balls, games                       Plastic bowls/cups
Hats, gloves and scarves                                 Small decorative items/Christmas decorations

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