Friday 25 November 2016: a huge thank you to all who gave so generously to the Littlewood Boarding House drive to collect boxes in support of the Santa Shoebox Project. Copied here is the letter to Mr Rudd, Vice-Principal Boarding, from Ms Lynda Blake at the Shoebox Project:

Dear Mr Rudd

It was a really needy little school that that received your boxes and the children were in awe of the whole process. To receive a present is so “alien” to them and to have so many things for themselves was just almost beyond belief. Once they opened the boxes, the chatter, and excitement on their faces was a real joy.

Please thank the boys and their parents for the wonderful contribution of 212 boxes, and for the lovely goodies they contained. We could see that a lot of thought went into the shopping for each box.

Special thanks to Rivaldo (Alves, Service Prefect 2017) for motivating the hostel boys to join in the Santa Shoebox project for 2016, and to you for coordinating the collection and delivery of the boxes

212 boxes was such an awesome contribution – I wish I could share with you all the sheer joy of seeing these little children when they open their gifts. The happy faces when they got their own toothbrush, wash cloth, and soap was so rewarding .

I wish you a well-deserved holiday and a very happy Christmas – all the best for 2017.

Kind regards
Lynda Blake
