Team Hope Christmas Appeal

Transition Year students are organising the Christmas shoebox appeal for team hope. Forms were sent home to all 1st, 2nd  and 3rd years with futher information.

We hope to double the 45 boxes we received last year.  We would be grateful if every family could donate one shoebox filled with presents suitable for children.

This year, why not share your Christmas with a child living on the margins of society, amongst the poorest children in the world? Visit the website for more information
