One of our younger supporters, Aviva Adcock-Collis, has recently collected and brought in lots of things for Aquabox.
11th December 2016
Aviva first heard of Aquabox from a friend who has been bringing baby items in to Aquabox on Friday mornings. Aviva started off by sending bags full of her own teddy bears with her friend, but then wanted to collect some things for herself to bring in. She collected all of the items from friends and family, she wrote a text and sent it to all of her Mum's phone contacts, she also wrote a post for her Mum to put on Facebook. She asked all of the children and parents at Ashover Primary School where she goes, and nearly everybody who was asked gave something, from pillowcases, baby and children's clothes to soft toys. In total Aviva was collecting items for about 6 weeks and brought several bags full into the depot. She has now already begun planning what and how to collect more things for Aquabox.
The attached picture shows Aviva holding the Aquabox Achievement Certificate we presented her when she came in with her Mum to the depot. Thanks so much Aviva, and all who donated items to help children and families in need!
