Shoebox Bonanza 2012 20.11.12

The annual Year 7 Christmas Shoebox appeal in support of Operation Christmas Child has been a huge success with a fantastic 222 boxes being donated in total from the six Tutor Groups.

Those with the best individual totals were Max Carr in 7NBK who contributed 9 and Oliver Stanbridge in 7EJ who brought in 7: congratulations and thanks to them in particular but also thanks to everyone else who helped to achieve such an outstanding result for the appeal.

The inter-form competition was won very narrowly by 7NBK who collected a total of 53 shoeboxes between them.

Packed with small toys, games, small musical intruments, educational supplies (especially stationery), hygiene items (such as toothbrushes, toothpaste and soap), non-chocolate sweets, scarves, gloves, hats, etc., this year the Shoeboxes will be distributed to very poor children in Kosovo.
