Christmas can be a very exciting time of year: spending time with family and friends, giving and receiving presents, singing carols, decorating the house, and eating lots of food. During the month of December we at Test Valley decided to think about those who are not as fortunate as others.
We used the idea of a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ to place items into a hamper each day to donate to the Andover Food Bank before the end of term. We wanted to help ensure we could make Christmas for someone a happier one. Each tutor group took part in the ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ and donated generously.
We filled 15 boxes with food and other essential items, indeed the boxes were over flowing. On delivery the volunteers working at the food bank were extremely grateful. We are extremely proud of the pupils and staff for contributing towards the hampers and making a difference to others’ Christmas.
