CHRISTMAS CHARITY APPEAL - as described by one of our Year 4 pupils
On Tuesday 19th December, a charity called Trident came to our school. Trident help vulnerable people. At Hodge Hill Primary School we believe Christmas is not only about receiving gifts, but also about helping others. In our class we collected over 123 items and made decorated Christmas boxes filled with useful items such as toothpaste, chocolates, gloves, scarves, biscuits, sleeping bags and much more. We placed our boxes under the Christmas tree in the foyer. The school council worked together and reported that the whole school donated over 1300 items.
Some people are homeless because they have not paid their bills or had a fight with their family and do not have anywhere to live. Remember to never give them money, you can buy them something to drink and eat.
