Christmas shoebox appeal

TCA is once again launching its Christmas shoebox appeal in support of those less fortunate in our community.

Each tutor group has been challenged to fill a shoebox that will be distributed with the help of a local charity.

If every tutor group fills a box, it means we can provide 50 individuals in Wisbech with gifts, which for some, may be the only present they receive this Christmas.

Last year, there was a great response to our appeal, with students and staff filling more than 60 shoeboxes (pictured above).

What do we need to put in our shoebox?

Each box should contain:

1.       A Christmas/greeting card from your tutor group (some recipients may not have received a card for many years)

2.       Two hygiene/toiletry items (simple soap, shampoo, shower gel, sanitary items) 

3.       Three food items (non-perishable, i.e. canned food etc)

4.       A hat, scarf and a pair of gloves (these could be second hand providing they are clean and good quality) 

Donations should be made before Monday 17th December.

The appeal is being co-ordinated by our Student Leadership Team so any questions should be directed to our Head Girl Teagan Lee or Head Boy Max Hamilton.
