    North Wingfield smash shoebox appeal target

    Company News

    18 November 2021

    The Kids Planet North Wingfield team are delighted to reveal they have exceeded their target of filling 100 boxes for the ‘Operation Christmas Child’ appeal.

    The nursery has been busy filling 170 boxes for children in need. Not only that, the group has raised a huge £600, which covers the cost of sending each shoebox around the world.

    Each gift has a unique barcode meaning the children will be able to track where they have travelled to from over 100 countries.

    The children at nursery have written letters and drawn pictures to go into the shoeboxes, and staff have been teaching the nursery children about children in need around the world and about the importance of kindness and giving.

    Sophie Hoyland, Nursery Manager at Kids Planet North Wingfield, said: “Personally, I have always done these shoeboxes every year from being a child.  Myself and the whole team have been very passionate about this and decided to register as a collection point to try and collect as many boxes as possible.

    The team has worked so hard to collect the shoeboxes and raise money. We reached out to our local community and have had lots of members of the public dropping off completed shoeboxes or items to go into them, for which we have been very grateful.

    Our parents have been amazing and have donated so many boxes. Not only that, they have donated money, bought raffle tickets, and taken part in fundraising games, which has all contributed to making this possible. We have been overwhelmed with all of the support.”
