Big hearted staff and students at Clevedon School have yet again sent out hundreds of shoeboxes to Eastern Europe and Pakistan.
It is the seventh year that students and staff have embraced the shoebox appeal with their biggest number yet – a massive 209 shoeboxes packed with a variety of helpful items for those in need abroad.
The boxes will go to Blythswood Care who have been in operation since 1966 and whose mesaage is ‘Christian Kindness in Action’. This organisation combines the Christian message with practical help for those in need. Whether through filled shoeboxes at Christmas, relief and development aid or social projects for young and old, Blythswood brings hope to thousands in Europe, Africa and Asia. Blythswood is committed to long-term care projects in Romania, enabling disadvantaged children and young people to fulfil their potential. With the support of individuals and groups like the Clevedon School community, Blythswood provides loving care for body and soul.
Teacher and organiser Rose North said: “Our students and staff have once again shown how caring and charity-minded they are with a huge feat in the shoebox appeal. We are delighted to have broken our record.”
