Teams4u Stretton Shoebox Appeal 2020 - Message From The Organising Committee
In a year when the odds were against the appeal in so many ways, the support received has been most welcome!
Volunteers sorted, stored, and packed; crafted items, wrapped boxes, gifted pre-loved toys, bought essentials, and generously donated money.
This enabled Teams4u Stretton to achieve a total of 2,815 shoeboxes from an overall total of approximately 50,000 boxes.
These boxes started their 1,400 mile journey from Stretton in mid-November, reaching the vulnerable children and families in Oradea, Western Romania, in December and it is hoped more boxes will have arrived in Moldova by early 2021.
