Blythswood Shoebox Appeal

As part of our charity work this term, pupils have taken part in the Blythswood Shoebox Appeal. Items for the boxes were kindly donated via a collection box at Raasay Community Stores, filled shoebox donations from members of the community, parents and staff. Pupils stayed on after school on Tuesday 26th October to fill the shoeboxes with all the items that were donated. Before they did so they watched a short video about the work of Blythswood and the impact of the shoebox donations to families in Eastern European countries. The boys carefully chose appropriate items for their intended recipient and we are sure that they will be gratefully appreciated. Well done boys for your fantastic charity work and bringing joy and a smile to children and families who you have never met before and to whom you will be making a big difference this Christmas. A total of 10 boxes will be sent on to the Blythswood Distribution Centre, with extra left-over items also being sent on. Little ACORNS (All Children Of Raasay Nursery and School) making a big difference!
