We are collecting for Chinyaradzo Children’s Home in Zimbabwe and hope to send a large container of children’s toys and clothes in time for Christmas. The children are aged 0-18 years. Cash donations, to be given directly to Claire, are also welcome as we need to raise £200 to pay for the transport of the container.
Items needed (new or in good condition):
- Dolls and dolls’ clothes, doll’s tea sets
- Toy cars/trains/aeroplanes
- Jigsaws and puzzles, Rubik’s cube
- Books (to help with learning English)
- Soft cuddly toys (40cm or less)
- Doll’s house (collapsible for packing) & furniture
- Coloured and ordinary pencils, rubbers, drawing books
- Paper, paint boxes & brushes
- Roller skates/roller shoes
- Children’s clothes (summer wear), shoes & socks
- Nightwear for boys & girls
There will be a large box at the back of All Saints’ Church from 8th to 31st August for donations. More information in the July issue of The Steeple (All Saints magazine, available in church), or from Claire Petrie, via the Parish Office (01737 379289).
