South Bromsgrove Students Donate for the Homeless
Over the past few weeks, Year 9 students at South Bromsgrove High School have been bringing in items including tinned food, biscuits, chocolates, pasta, rice, toiletries, games, toys and colouring books.
There are 12 tutor groups in Year 9 and, collectively they managed to fill 15 large boxes of items to help homeless families and young people in need. The staff at South also helped by filling boxes of their own! These hampers will be donated to the Basement Project in Bromsgrove, a small local charity that helps young people under 25 who are homeless or at risk of homelessness. These hampers will be given to the charity to support these vulnerable young people and their families over Christmas. This initiative was organised and led by the Heads of Year, Mrs Rees and Mr Jacobe and Teaching Assistant, Mrs Halfpenny. Mrs Rees said, ‘I was blown away by the sheer amount that our Year 9 students were able to donate. They had decorated their boxes beautifully to make them look like attractive hampers. It’s great to see young people really wanting to help others less fortunate than themselves’.
