Walton school donates over 100 hampers to local families
A Walton high school has distributed over 100 hampers of food and treats to local families to help them celebrate Christmas.
Alsop High School launched its Donate A Plate campaign during November, and encouraged staff, former students and community members to donate a £10 plate of food.
Last year, Alsop launched its ’25 days of kindness’ initiative in the run-up to Christmas. It encouraged young people to be ambassadors of hope and renewal, and every day, ambassadors were assigned a simple task to facilitate kindness.
Mr Peter Bull, chair of The Alsop Foundation CIO comments: “As a school we realise that some people will struggle during the Christmas period.
“We are pleased that students and staff have led on charitable initiatives and raised over £2500 to provide food and care packages to support local families during difficult times.”
