Over the last term our whole class have been organising the Blytheswood Shoebox Appeal to help people who don’t get presents on Christmas Day.
First we sent a letter home to tell pupils and parents that they could donate empty shoeboxes, items to go inside the boxes, donations of £2.50 or complete shoeboxes.
In the end we got 37 boxes altogether and raised £42.50. We went to the Whiteness Shop to drop off all the boxes so they can send them away to the children.
Tingwall pupils and parents were very generous and we hope the children really enjoy opening our shoebox presents. We will be thinking of them when we open our presents on Christmas Day.
