Salvation Army Toy Appeal 2013
This was our 7th year contributing to the Salvation Army Toy Appeal. Once again the whole school rose to the challenge and the generosity from EVERYBODY was fantastic.
The gifts that all the tutor groups bought were fantastic and it was evident that there was a lot of thought that had gone into the whole process of raising the money to buy the gifts.
The School Council will once again be support the toy appeal as we think that it is such a worthy cause because it benefits children in our area.
It also gives us the opportunity to help others – developing our social responsibility. It is one way in which WE can give something back to OUR local community.
We were amazed this year by some of the innovative ways that the money to buy the toys was raised. 11NS sold Christmas cards, Birthday cards and held a tombola, 9MG raffled a chocolate hamper, 7SO completed a sponsored silence and some of the boys from 10PW had their legs waxed! Every tutor group in the school were enthused with the appeal.
The toys were presented to Mrs Theresa Dunn from the Salvation Army. She could not believe the amount of toys we had managed to donate and was delighted by the warmth and generosity from everybody. She thanked us all.
The School Council would like to thank everybody, staff and pupils, for helping to make somebody’s Christmas so much better.
Update: With our help this year The Salvation Army raised a total of 12,539 gifts & helped over 6,000 families in North Staffordshire at Christmas. Click here for more details…
