25/10/17 - Team Hope Shoebox Appeal
Both Newtownhamilton High and Newtownhamilton Primary will be supporting the Drop Inn Ministries Christmas Shoebox Appeal. Drop Inn Ministries Team Hope Representative Mr Ian Liggett recently spoke to our pupils and staff during assembly and explained that his organisation has been sending humanitarian aid to Belarus, Ukraine and Latvia since 1995. This includes distributing shoeboxes to children who live in orphanages, who are in hospital or whose lives are affected by poverty and ill health.
What should you send? - Small toy (car or doll), small game (puzzle, skipping rope), cuddly toy, stationary (pencils, pens, crayons, exercise books etc), confectionary (sweets or chocolate), toiletries (soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and sponge), clothing (scarf, gloves and hat) & letter/photograph.
All families are encouraged to support this worthy cause by sending in a filled shoebox on or before Friday 17th November 2017.
