Shoebox Appeal

Date Posted: 14/12/2015 | Posted In: Latest news

Students entered into the spirit of Christmas by participating in a Christmas Shoebox Appeal for Stella’s Voice, a charity in Moldova.  The charity’s vision is to ‘be the voice that speaks for the orphans of Moldova, from the smallest child, to the older teens’ and the appeal to provide Christmas gifts for boys and girls in orphanages in Moldova was enthusiastically supported.

Tutor groups produced and donated over 60 shoeboxes full to the brim of clothing, toiletries, stationery, sweets, tinned food, and toys. All of the boxes will arrive in Moldova before Christmas and will be handed out personally to the children.

QE has supported this charity for many year and Beccy Stannard, Student Services

Co-Ordinator, said:

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