Backpacks to Africa

The Christmas appeal for backpacks to be sent to school children in Africa was a great success with 163 back packs being picked up in January by Mary’s Meals so they are no on the way.

A further 7 boxes with excercise books, toothbrushes etc were also included in the shipment. Each pack includes all the essentials for school, pens pencils etc and also for hygeine like soap ,toothpaste etc and also shoes and a variety of other items.

Thanks to all who made the effort to make up a backpack or contribute to them.
