We have worked with a church in Albania for a number of years now, helping the children there have a brighter Christmas. This year we will be collecting again for the shoebox appeal.
You can bring items to the October Pop-Up Cafe or drop them off at a collection point on Flowerdown and Locking Parklands (message us for addresses).
This is the list of items needed for the WeBox Appeal. Cash donations are also welcome which will fund food boxes.

• Soap, flannel, toothbrush, toothpaste, shower gel, mouthwash, shampoo, conditioner, perfume, toothbrush, hairbrush
• Pens, notepad, colouring pencils/crayons, pencils, calculator, picture book, puzzle book, pencil case, pencil sharpener, chalk etc.
