Girls in Christmas Shoebox Appeal
Thursday, 12 November 2015
Girls at Bolton School have donated 200 shoeboxes for Samaritan Purse’s Operation Christmas Child. Girls in Years 7-13 were asked to fill a shoebox with small gifts appropriate to a girl or boy aged 2 - 4 years, 5 - 9 years or 10 - 14 years. Their effort was supplemented by a large haul of shoeboxes from Years 3 - 6 girls in the Junior School. The pupils helped load up the van and the boxes will be delivered to children in need in Africa and Eastern Europe in time for Christmas.
Mrs Sophie Entwistle, Head of Community Action, said: “I am delighted with the contributions from the girls. It is important and right that they consider others that are less fortunate than themselves at this time of year.”
