Team Hope Shoebox Appeal

The children of Wandesforde National School, Castlecomer, have been busy over the past few weeks filling lots and lots of shoeboxes for children in poverty-stricken countries worldwide as part of Team Hope’s Christmas Shoebox Appeal.  A total of 42 shoeboxes were collected and filled with various treats, toys, gloves, hats, scarves, colouring books, pencils and crayons.  A huge thank you to all the children who brought in a shoebox and to the Mums and Dads who helped pack them.  The shoeboxes are now on the long journey to Africa and Eastern Europe where they will, hopefully, bring a smile to the boys and girls who receive them.

    Lovely photo of the whole school. My 2 always enjoy shopping for the toys and other bits for the shoeboxes and imagining the little boy or girl who might be receiving it.
