Our Y6 children have been involved in a reverse advent calendar where, instead of receiving a small gift, they have brought into school small items to give to charity. They very kindly donated knitted hats, an array of toiletries and long life food products.
Our chosen charity once again was STARCH who work with asylum seekers and refugees in South Tyneside. The donations will be handed out to families next Tuesday as part of their Christmas celebrations.
Margaret from STARCH was amazed at the children’s generosity and thoughtfulness, as were our staff. A huge thank you to everyone and their families who contributed to help others this Christmastime.
