During our trip to Tanzania, we were shocked and saddened by the lack of resources the children at our partnership school have. This year we have therefore decided to collect for them rather than our usual 'Shoe Box' appeal. We have decided to abandon the actual shoe box as these are useless after the contents have been taken out and we are now asking the children to fill one of the Hessian bags that are available from most superstores for about £1.00, the Tanzanian children can then re-use the bags as school bags.
Suggestions for items to put into the bag would be -
- craft equipment eg. glue, glitter, collage material
- coloured paper
- a book
- a small ball
- exercise/note book
As there are over 600 children in our partner school, we know that we are unlikely to be successful in sending every child a bag, so please ask friends and family if they would like to help too!
Please bring in your bags into school as soon as possible.They are going to be sent to Tanzania in early November.
As always we know that we can depend on you support in this appeal. Thank you
