Once again we collected items for backpacks for girls and for boys and we were able to fill 15 packs in total! Three sacks contained 5 completed backpacks each and the fourth sack was full up with “extras”: pens, pencils, other stationery, children’s t-shirts and some large flip-flops.
Each of the completed backpack contains:
notepad, pencils, pens, crayons, eraser, ruler, sharpener, pencil case, towel, shorts or skirt, t-shirt or dress, flip-flops or sandals, small ball, soap, toothbrush, toothpaste and spoon.
The sacks go to a collection point in Glasgow (free pick up from a delivery company) where they are sorted and despatched to various destinations in Africa, Asia etc. where there is a need. SI Bristol would like to send a very BIG “Thank You” to all of you who contributed so generously to such a worthwhile cause.
