#SaffronAid2 - Coordinators Claire & Lara McGoldrick
The Club is taking part in SaffronAid2, a shoe box appeal, organised by the County in conjunction with St Vincent DePaul .
We are asking our members to pick up some extra items while out and about before Christmas and to put them in a wrapped shoe box with a label saying if they are for male/female and the age group. Don't cover the front so SVP can see what is included!
Some suggested items for the boxes are;
Shower Gel, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Toothbrushes, Mouthwash, Lip Balm, Sanitary Products, Flannels, Combs, Hairbrushes, Hand Cream, Deodorant Spray/Roll On, Chocolate, Hot Chocolate Sachets, Notepad and Pen/Pencils, Torches, Batteries, Mobile Phone Chargers, Travel First Aid Kits, Socks, Hats, Gloves, Scarves, Small Towels, Earplugs, and Eyemasks.
Although this list isn't exhaustive!
Collection of the shoe boxes will begin Sunday 19th November 2017 in the Clubhouse and pick ups will also be made at juvenile trainings that week. SVP will collect the boxes on 25th November 2017.
We understand that everyone has additional commitments at this time of year so any help for this cause is greatly appreciated.
