Closing date for ‘Bring a Present to School’ is Wednesday 16 December.

Thank you so much to all our parents for supporting our ‘Bring a Present to School’ appeal to support the Dartford Toy Appeal.  We have been overwhelmed by the support to help make a child’s Christmas this year.  If you want to donate a present, the closing date for this will be on Wednesday this week to allow us to get the toys to the Charity before the end of the term.  Items need to be designated boy or girl and have an age range on the tag.  Male and Female toiletries for teens are a catagory sometimes overlooked so gratefully accepted.

A note from the organisers of the Dartford Toy Appeal:

This is the 7th year of the Dartford Toy Appeal and we think the need will be greater than ever this year.  We are collecting donations for ellenor, Imago, Young People Support, We are Beams, Homestart, Mary’s Child the refuge and Rosewood mother and baby unit. Last year we received 2500 donations. We have always run the appeal on the basis that people give a toy or gift they chose themselves. We must face that this is going to be much more difficult this year as so many of our drop off points will now be closed through November.
