SHOEBOXES COLLECTED

Primary pupils hand-deliver ASPIRE's completed shoeboxes Primary pupils hand-deliver ASPIRE's completed shoeboxes

Volunteers from the Paphos shoebox appeal visited ASPIRE on Friday to collect the children’s completed boxes.

Mrs Hadjiyiakoumi, Principal of ASPIRE, opened Friday’s assembly by reminding pupils about the meaning behind the charity initiative and thanked everyone for their help in giving local children a ‘Gift of Love’ for Christmas.

After a personal thank you from the two volunteers, Primary pupils then lined up outside to hand-deliver the gifts.

We are proud to have collected more than 25 boxes filled with toys, treats and toiletries, which will now be distributed to needy children in the region.

A huge thank you to all pupils and parents for their contribution to this very worthy cause.
