Shoe box appeal

Date Posted: 18/11/2013 | Posted In: Latest news

Students at QE entered into the spirit of Christmas early this year by participating in Convoy Aid Romania’s Christmas Shoebox Appeal. This Stockton based charity sends Shoe Boxes, full of gifts, to children and adults who are in need in Romania.

Beccy Stannard, Student Service Co-Ordinator at QE, said

“It’s a great charity and the Student Association and QE get involved every year. This could be the only Christmas present these children and adults get – so it makes it all the more special, and important for us to continue to be involved.”

Tutor groups were asked to donate Christmas presents and the gifts were then wrapped in Christmas themed boxes. Gifts were collected enthusiastically and included items of clothing, toiletries, stationery, sweets, tinned food and toys. All of the boxes will arrive in Romania before Christmas and will be handed out personally to the adults and children.
