Jermaine Defoe Foundation Shoebox Appeal

This month our Year 7 and 8 cohorts have helped to support The Jermain Defoe Foundation’s Shoe Box Appeal. The charity asks people to “simply wrap up an empty shoe box (lid and bottom separately), then fill it with as many children’s items as you can such as toys, teddy bears, clothing, colouring books etc.”. This year the charity will be helping to spread some Christmas cheer to children in St Lucia.

We would like to thank both year groups for their efforts and generosity. However, a special mention must be made for Miss Shepherd’s form, 7C2, who brought in the most boxes of any form overall.
