Operation Christmas Child & Advent Appeals

Posted on: November 27th 2017College Events


Throughout autumn and Advent, students and staff at De Lisle have contributed to numerous local, national and international charity efforts.  We have had great success with competitions, bake sales and non-uniform days, all supported by our generous students and staff. Notably, each form group contributed in some way to the 38 shoe boxes filled with toys, sweets and hygiene products that have been sent overseas to children who may otherwise have not received a gift for Christmas as part of Operation Christmas Child. As we progress through Advent, we continue to collect in the essential donations of items for Carpenter’s Arms, Falcon Rehabilitation Centre and Shepshed Food Bank. We are overwhelmed with the love and compassion each member of the De Lisle Catholic community shows to their neighbours locally and across the world.
