Our Sixth Form-led Interact Club has collected a record number of shoe-boxes for the Lichfield St Chad’s annual Shoe-Box Appeal.

The shoe-boxes included toys, toiletries and baby products and hours of work has ended with them being collected for the main depot before being shipped off to children and families in Eastern Europe.

In fact, donations have truly exceeded expectations and there was even an excess of products. It was felt that we could also support our local charity ‘Pathway Project’ by donating the extra toys, teddy bears, baby clothes, nappies and toiletries to them. The Pathway Project in Lichfield supports families escaping domestic violence and receive families in desperate circumstances at a moment’s notice, often bringing with them few personal belongings.

Harry Barton, Sixth Form Charity Rep said, “It has been so good to see everyone in the school work together to help produce this incredible donation. Each tutor group has contributed showing just how much we can achieve when we work as team.”
