Denver Primary School fills shoeboxes with donations for Rotary Shoebox appeal
Children at a primary school came together to fill shoeboxes with items they donated for a good cause.
Denver Primary School children have been busy collecting items to fill shoeboxes for the Rotary Shoebox Appeal which is a scheme that collects and sends boxes or gifts to countries in eastern Europe throughout the year to orphanages, homes, and hospitals.
The school and the pupils have managed to fill 78 boxes from their generous donations.
St Mary’s Church in Denver has also been filling boxes for the appeal, taking the total between themselves and the school to 150.
Louise Jones, head teacher, said: “Our Christian value for this half term is generosity and we asked our children/families to bring four items to go in the shoeboxes.
“Many of the children filled whole shoeboxes.
“Items did not have to be brand new and included small toys, toiletries, etc.”
Mrs Jones said she and the members of staff are so pleased at the children’s generosity to others.
