The 2001 appeal raised 337 shoe boxes which were sent on Monday 12th November 2000 from Elmgrove Primary. Mr. Gray was interviewed on a nearby church's radio station (broadcasting for a weekend) about the appeal.
The sum of £700 was also raised to help with transportation costs.
The boxes were taken to Townsend Street Presbyterian Church who had thousands of other sheboxes alread in storage ready to go.
Thankyou to everyone who helped with the appeal.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
