173 Shoeboxes Donated To This Year's Christmas Teams4U Appeal
Thanks to generous donations, the Chaplaincy team were able to assemble 173 boxes for the annual Shoebox appeal.
Princethorpe’s Chaplaincy Team is supporting the St Anne's, Wappenbury, Parish Shoe Box Appeal, to provide gifts for children overseas who would not otherwise receive a Christmas present.
This year, a grand total of 173 boxes have been assembled, the most ever collected, ready to bring happiness and joy to children at this special time of the year.
The boxes will be distributed by Teams4U and will be given to a vulnerable child, or family, through schools, nurseries, hospitals and orphanages. T4U share the gifts through relationships with local communities as part of a long-term commitment to their children.
Each shoebox is packed full of little gifts and includes educational and hygiene essentials, and each and every one also contains a personal message handwritten by a Princethorpe pupil.
Our thanks go to all the pupils, parents and staff who have donated to the appeal and to our team of pupils, Jemima, Genevieve, Maria, Alexa, Ruby and Liv who have so kindly supported the appeal by organising, assembling, sorting and packing all the boxes.
