Please thank all of the staff involved in collecting the shoeboxes for us, and, most of all, please thank the children. In the end, we collected 1,474 boxes from the schools, and we had a grand total of 4,107 boxes overall. So that means that a large proportion of these boxes were filled by children. Thats wonderful, and we thank them all. This means that 4,107 children in Eastern Europe will get one box at Christmas. They have now been shipped to the uk, and they will soon go off to Eastern Europe.
Please thank everyone for their hard work, and I will be in touch again next year!
