Many thanks to everyone who donated items for the homeless appeal. We were really pleased with the response from parents which enabled us to fill many boxes for the homeless. We used photocopying boxes so they are double the size of a shoe box so each person will receive even more items in their boxes.
The children in Foundation made Christmas cards to add to each box and helped to sort and pack the boxes. Boxes were safely dropped off at Tesco on Saturday morning ready to be distributed across the city.
To update everyone the charity received 3015 shoeboxes from people in Sheffield which have been distrubuted by Christmas - many thanks for making a difference!
Some of the many donations ready to be made into shoeboxes by the children.
