Christmas Shoe Box
Samaritans Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2018
This year we wanted to show the children that Christmas isn't the same for everyone.
Children purchased their box for £1 and then took it home and put items in for either a boy or girl and then picked an age group. 2-4 years, 5-9 years and 10-14 years.
The boxes were filled with toys, stationery, items of clothing, toiletries, sweets. All the things, that our children make take for granted that they receive. We received back a complete mix of ages and boys and girls boxes.
As well as the boxes, we did a dress down day, whereby the children wore their own clothes in exchange for a £1.
The total amount of boxes which we received back was 120. This means there will be 120 children somewhere, whose Christmas is going to be a little bit different this year.
Thank you everyone who contributed on the dress down day and by returning the shoeboxes. We are very proud of everyone's contribution to this great charity.
