Students give generously to yuletide appeal

What a fantastically generous bunch of students we have at Tottington High School! At this time of year when most young people are writing lengthy Christmas lists, Tottington High School students were busy tirelessly donating to those less fortunate then themselves. A short letter home and a few words of encouragement from form tutors was all that was needed to spur them into action. In less than two weeks we had boxes and bags that were overflowing with donations – which varied from essentials such as shower gel and toothpaste, to luxury items such as make up and gift sets.

Students were mindful of the weather conditions that the homeless recipients might have to face, and donated a plethora of thermal items such as socks, scarfs and gloves. They were also aware that at this time of year everybody deserves a treat! Therefore biscuits, chocolates and sweets were among the edible treats donated.

All these items were gratefully received by Mick Priestley on behalf of Time4change. This charitable organisation offer a free breakfast club each Tuesday and Wednesday morning in Bury where service users receive a hot meal and copious amounts of tea or coffee, as well as the opportunity to have a friendly chat. Ms Al-Bejawi, along with Ms Ward and two Year 11 students, Zoe and Ruby, delivered the donations to the very grateful attendees of the breakfast club on Tuesday 18th December with whom we had a brew and a chat.

Mick and all the volunteers at Time4change, along with the recipients of the donations, wanted to pass on their best wishes and thanks to Tottington High students, parents and teachers for their overwhelming generosity. I would like to second that…well done and thank you!
