Outstanding charitable giving from Juniors
Junior School pupils demonstrated their generous side as they worked together in aid of a number of extremely deserving charities.
Reverse Advent for Stockport Foodbank
Mrs Farrelly from Stockport Foodbank launched the Reverse Advent initiative after speaking at an assembly about the vital support they offer to local people in crisis and how the public can help.
Stockport Foodbank is part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, that work to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.
Boys and girls from all year groups donated a range of food items and toiletries that will help all those going through tough times.
Headmaster Mr Wheeler was pleased to be able to deliver the collection to one of the charity’s six centres.
Donations to Mission Christmas and Salvation Army
The Mission Christmas van pulled into the car park where it was filled with bags packed to the brim with presents.
The nationwide initiative raised over £14.6 million and helped 380,054 children across the UK. In Greater Manchester, 41,836 children were helped.
Pupils also helped deliver donations to the Salvation Army, carrying bags to assist the charity’s volunteer who came to pick the gifts up.
They were pleased to be able to hand over such a great amount of gifts and the donations will help the charity which has been transforming lives in every community for 150 years.
Christmas Jumper Day
Excited pupils looked fantastically festive as they raised money for Save The Children by taking part in the charity’s national Christmas Jumper Day initiative.
Santa, reindeers and elves were among the iamges depicted on the garments that the boys and girls wore throughout the day.
The charity, which was established in 1919, helps to improve the lives of children through better education, health care, and economic opportunities, as well as providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war, and other conflicts.
