Shoe Box Appeal

Check out the video about the Shoe Box Appeal for this year. We hope you will support this very worthwhile appeal.

As I’m sure you all know Christmas can be a very happy time for so many people, receiving gifts, meeting up with family and friends, eat good food and just having a good time.

Unfortunately, this is not everyone’s experience. For some people there are no gifts, no friends or family and no celebration food. Imagine Christmas like that. Nothing to look forward to, nothing to open on Christmas morning. No happy smiling faces….. just another day and all the difficulties it brings. Well with your help we would like to change that.

Each year Devenish College pupils and staff participate in the Christmas shoe box appeal, whereby pupils and staff are asked to donate items or funding to this very worthwhile cause.

As you will read below it is a very simple thing to do, and in six easy steps you will change the Christmas experience for other children and adults.

So please help if you can, as the saying goes every little helps. This is the 25th year Blythswood Care Christmas shoe box appeal and I want Devenish College to be part of this special year.

In 2017 Devenish College filled 145 shoe boxes and donated £450 towards their postage around the world. I am sure we can do even better this year…and with your help….we will!
