Every year, Ballyduff National School participates in the Christmas Shoebox Appeal organised by Team Hope. Team Hope sends thousands of gift-ﬁlled shoeboxes to children in Africa and Eastern Europe.
The children who receive the shoeboxes are aﬀected by poverty in diﬀerent ways. Many come from families with very little income, others live on the margins of society or in areas aﬀected by conﬂict. Shoeboxes are given based on need alone and bring joy and excitement to children living in often very diﬃcult situations.
Well done to all involved. There were lots of boxes donated in our school which will bring joy and happiness to many children at Christmas time.
