Dear all

As many of you know, every year Iona School supports the local charity, Basket Brigade Nottingham.  It is a 100% volunteer run project delivering had select gifts and luxury goodies to people nominated by their community for a bit of extra love at the Festive Season.

As ever, some very moving nominations have been made; young carers, caring for one and sometimes two disabled or poorly parents and women fleeing from domestic violence.  Getting a wonderful hamper to let them know they are not alone can be the difference between despair and hope.

You can help!

***We need people for 1 hr TODAY after school to set up tables in the Hall and carry the stuff out of cars and in…

Come on the day!

Or donate a gift for a child or adult – wrapped is ideal – with a removable label saying the age and type of present it is to make sure we deliver it to the right person!

You can drop presents off tomorrow in the Hall.

Children are welcome – It’s a highlight for many and a wonderful way the children see that the “giving” side of the Festive Season is also great fun!! (They remain your responsibility at all times of course!)

Thank you in advance on behalf of the thrilled faces at the door when their delivery arrives!

Best wishes
