Christmas hampers donated to local care home to spread festive cheer

All of the students at Giles Academy have joined together to give their season’s greetings by creating Christmas hampers for elderly people and residents at a local care home.

This week, Miss Pearson (Head of Newton House) and Mr Taylor (Medical Lead) delivered Christmas hampers to The Minstrels Care Home in Wrangle. This is an annual tradition for the school where students in every form donate an item into a Christmas hamper.

Every form in the school created their very own Christmas hamper, which they decorated in their very own Christmas theme and every student then donated an item to put in the hamper. The range of items donated included chocolates, biscuits, tea bags, coffee, hot chocolate, marmalade, jam, tinned food, toiletries, socks and festive items.

When all of these small items come together in one hamper – it becomes a very generous and appreciated gift at a time of year when some people may be lonely or in need.

Thank you to all of the students, families and staff who generously donated to this worthwhile initiative to spread some festive cheer.
