This year Biggin Hill decided to take part in the shoebox appeal for Operation Christmas Child.
This is a project run by the charity Samaritan’s Purse, which sends Christmas gifts to children in need around the world, regardless of their belief or backgrounds.
We were originally going to send 1 or 2 shoe boxes per class but due to the generosity of all pupils at Biggin Hill we managed to send 63 shoe boxes for the appeal.
Well done to everyone who brought in items and helped pack the boxes.
