Pupils fill 287 shoeboxes for families across Europe
This year Perse Pupils at the Pelican, Prep and Upper School filled 287 shoeboxes with gifts for those in need across Eastern Europe.
The school supported the annual Family Shoebox Appeal organised by the charity Link To Hope, which distributes boxes in Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and the Ukraine.
Many of the shoeboxes contained things like games, stationary, toys, hats and scarves.
Many of the families who receive a box are living in poverty and can’t afford to buy presents for each other at Christmas – the boxes they receive bring joy and hope to their lives.
