The BIG little Shoe Box Appeal

It's back!!

Following a tough 2020 when we were left with no other choice but to cancel our school Siiboo Day due to a lack of funds surrounding COVID and fundraising restrictions we are over the moon to be able to get The BIG little Shoe Box Appeal back up and running for 2021!

Siiboo Day is held at our school during the last week of term before Christmas and it is our way of giving the children and the staff a lovely day including presents for the children, food made by the mums, dancing and also music.  

In order for this day to be the great success it is and for the children to have a gift each we rely on our friends, family and our amazing Siiboo community to donate a shoebox filled with gifts for a child.  

What should I include in my box?
Due to the cost of shipping the boxes to The Gambia we can only accept boxes with £3 attached to help cover these costs.

Please could each box be wrapped in any wrapping paper you have available (separately wrapped box and lids please for our checking process).

How do I get my box to you?

Boxes can be posted to us at our address below or if you are local they can be dropped off at our home or we can collect locally on one of our collection days.  These days will be posted soon. 
Our address is 26 Nelson Square, Egremont, Cumbria CA22 2BE.
