Refugee families are fleeing war torn Syria and IS extremists and journeying to camps in Greece. According to an Amnesty International report of 4th Sept the vast majority have NOTHING with them when they arrive and locals can only give so much help. We have decided to take part in a “shoe box” appeal which will deliver a much needed shoe box of items directly to those in need.
If you would like to help by donating a box the following list is a useful guide. Please label your box with the age group and male or female, girl, boy or either this will help when being distributed (labels available from reception ).
We would be really grateful if people could tape £2 to each box to help with the cost of shipping to Greece.
If covering boxes or decorating please do not seal boxes as they need to be able to be opened for customs checks. A brief note inside is also a nice touch.
Adult aid boxes Children’s boxes
Wet wipes Wet Wipes
Shower gel (soap messy when travelling) Comb/Brush
Comb/brush Small Toy
Sewing kit Pencils (with sharpener)
Feminine hygiene products Erasers
Nail clippers Notebooks
Hat Colouring pads
Scarf Draw String Bag (Gym Bag)
All items are not compulsory but a guide, your help in whatever way is much appreciated and every little makes a difference.
Thank you for your support.
