Notice from the Holiday Committee:
Hello, we are the holiday committee and we are raising awareness for a charity called Kids Company, which is a charity for poor children living in London. We would like to ask if you have any boxes or shoe boxes, if you could bring them into school and donate them. We will wrap them and send them to the charity. The charity will then fill them with presents and give them to the children. Thank you for your help!
We would like to decorate our school, if you want to collaborate with us please bring either a decoration or some money to help us. Any religions decorations are welcome!
Please give the items or the money to your advisor.
