As an integral part of our ongoing charity collections, students and staff were encouraged to bring in items for either a homeless charity, or an animal sanctuary, in the form of a “reverse advent calendar”. The idea being that it is nice to give to others, as well as receive at this time of year!
We collected a total of 18 boxes of items; 8 boxes being given to Hilbrae Pets Hotel and Stray Kennels, and the further 10 boxes being donated to The Trussell Trust. We have been assured by the charities that all of the items will have been put to good use; The Trussell Trust in particular using items to make up food and essentials Christmas hampers for those in need. Well done!
