Shoebox Appeal 2012
Every year Link Romania send thousands of shoeboxes packed with presents to some of the poorest families in Eastern Europe.
The Family Shoeboxes of gifts are given to families who often have to make a choice between buying food or fuel at Christmas time – buying presents is just not a priority. Many of these families do not have running water, heating or electricity. Some live in appalling conditions, often living in just one or two rooms, and life for them is a real struggle to survive.
Students at Bridlington School continue to support this charity, by bringing in items that can be placed into shoe boxes and sent to Eastern Europe. Each tutor group tries to get as many shoeboxes as possible, last year we sent 40 shoeboxes and are aiming to send even more this year (Mrs Green has set a target of 50 boxes)
Shoeboxes will be sent during the ½ term holiday so the deadline for tutor groups to hand in shoeboxes is 26/10/12.
