Every year we send shoebags filled with toys and other useful items for the children in our churches in Sierra Leone at Christmas. This year the instructions are:
Maximum to be spent per bag: £5
Each bag to have age and sex of the child it is for, ‘safety pinned’ to the outside.
Size of bag: approximately 15 inches square.
1. ‘Sports’ Drink bottle (not empty drinks bottle)
2. 1 pair pants / knickers
3. 1 tee shirts / vests
5. Tooth brush and paste
7. Pencils and coloured pencils
11. Exercise book
12. ‘One’ toy, please no more than one toy! (e.g. tennis ball, skipping rope, marbles, small toy car)
We plan to send the shoebags to Sierra Leone during October so will need to have them at either Copthorne or Wormley by late September.
