Shoeboxes for our Heroes
Fountains Primary School have joined forces with Derby County Ladies Football Club in the 'Shoeboxes for our Heroes' campaign this Christmas.
The children and their families were asked to think about our soldiers that won't be able to spend Christmas with their families, but instead will be abroad helping and protecting England and other countries instead.
The children brought in tinned and boxed up food, boiled sweets and toiletries in shoeboxes to donate to the campaign along with letters and cards for 'our heroes'. Our school council helped to pack some boxes when loose tins and boxes had been brought in as donations.
The shoeboxes will be taken to the Derby County Ladies training session on Tuesday 29th November to be sent in time for the soldiers to open on Christmas Day.
We would like to thank everyone who has donated a shoebox or items to fill the shoeboxes for such a great cause.
Update 29.11.2016 - Mr Abbey presented the Shoeboxes to Derby County Ladies Football Club.
