Christmas Shoebox Appeal

The Cubs took part in the TEAM HOPE Christmas Shoebox Appeal, This appeal is run every year and promises to get all boxes into the hands of a needy child In Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union or Africa.

Maybe an orphan in rural Romania, a girl living on the streets of Mozambique, a boy with cancer in a Ukraine hospital, a nine year old whose Mum and Dad have died of AIDS in Lesotho, or a girl who was sold into prostitution in Moldova.

All the boys filled their boxes with enthusiasm. We were all very happy knowing that they were helping those less fortunate than themselves.
