As a school, we wanted to do a Christmas collection for a local charity. This year we have chosen the Caring for Communities and People Charity (CCP) based in Cheltenham. At Christmas time CCP provide seasonal food parcels to families who are living on the brink of homelessness and struggling to afford food and heating alongside the expectations of the festive season. Others may be isolated adults and young people, with no friends or family to celebrate this special time of year with. To be able to provide this service and spread the spirit of Christmas, the CCP seek donations of festive foods alongside basic provisions.
In Collective Worship today, the children will be told about the charity and why we want to support it and what the impact will be for those families. They will be asked if they could bring in one item of festive food to help fill our school hamper in readiness for the charity to collect from us on Tuesday the 3rd of December, for them to make up individual hampers for these families.
Their suggested Festive foods are; gravy, cranberry sauce, stuffing, Yorkshire pudding mix, boxes of chocolates or biscuits, Yule log, Christmas cake, shower gel and shampoo as well as any donations of basic food items, for example; rice and past, tinned goods, tea, coffee, cereals etc. etc.
Thank you so much in advance for any donations that you send in to help support the children to fill the school hamper.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
