Africa’s Gift…

Dear Parents, Carers,

We have had a visitor in school this morning from a charity called ‘Africa’s Gift’.  The charity collects unwanted shoes and rehomes them in rural Africa to under privileged children and adults.

If you have any unwanted adult or child sized shoes, sandals, football boots, walking boots or trainers please send them into school with your children. They will be collected by the charity and transported to Africa to be loved once more.

All shoes donated need to be clean, paired and tied together.  Unfortunately, the charity cannot accept slippers, wellington boots or knee length boots.

Thank you on behalf of Africa’s Gift.  Together we can help to make a difference.

Yours sincerely

Miss M Tapp
