Ratcliffe Girls’ Boarding wraps up for the 2012 Shoe Box Appeal
This year’s Operation Christmas Child appeal was launched only a few weeks ago, and the Girls’ Boarding House embraced the request from Mr Michel (Lay Chaplain) to donate shoe boxes full of toys and gifts to children living in extreme poverty in Eastern Europe.
The girls with Mrs Leite, Mrs Nightingale and Mr Dogue spent a morning gift-wrapping the boxes to fill with lovely gifts during their weekend shopping trips to Thurmaston and Nottingham.
Girls’ Boarding hope to reach their target of 21 boxes, and we are proud that they are considering children in other countries at this time of giving. Well done girls!
