This year the children have been very generous with donating unwanted and new items to the shoe box appeal.
With only 10 children, we managed to donate a whole 7 boxes!
The children learnt the importance of donating items that they may no longer want or need and were compassionate to the reasons why the Shoe Box Appeal exists, uncerstanding that every child and adult has the right to be thought about.
UN Convention on the Rights of the Child

The convention applies to every child without discrimination, whatever their ethnicity, gender, religion, language, abilities or any other status, whatever they think or say, whatever their family background.
Article 6 (Life, Survival and development)
Every child has the right to life. Governments must do all they can to ensure that children survive and develop to their full potential.
