Christmas Box Appeal 2019Many of us really look forward to Christmas. But for many vulnerable children and families in Southeast Europe, Christmas serves as a reminder of their isolation and poverty. This year we will once again be joining Foundation for Social Change and Inclusion’s (FSCI) Christmas Box Appeal.
For many, a Christmas box will be the only present they receive this Christmas. But as well as helping to spread joy to thousands of people, these boxes are a great help to FSCI in their efforts to tackle poverty and prevent modern slaver.
In 2018, Barr Beacon donated a total of 11,006 Christmas Boxes, filled with small toys, sweets, hats and scarves, toiletries and other goodies. We would like to top this figure this year, but it is not possible without the help of everyone in our school community.
You can bring boxes into school on the morning of the 18th November 2019 to reception before school starts.
The deadline for bringing boxes into school is Monday 18th November.
