Many of you may remember that last year Stanborough Secondary School participated in ADRA’s annual Gift Box Appeal. The students packed 95 boxes – and raised £200 for shipping costs – which were delivered to underprivileged children in Sierra Leone.
This year the students at Stanborough once again proved their generosity by packing 105 boxes for disadvantaged children in Togo. Additionally they also raised £250 towards shipping cost. They have outdone themselves and we, as staff, are exceptionally proud of their commitment to humanitarian efforts.
The good will of Year 9Y deserves a special commendation, as they packed 26 boxes among themselves, earning them the ‘The Most Successful Form’ award. Another commendation goes to Tabason, as she, herself, packed 15 boxes this year.
Teachers, staff and alumni also participated; they managed to pack 23 boxes. In addition, a very generous staff member donated over £150 to buy toys and stationery for the boxes.
Lastly, we would like to thank everyone who participated in this project; special thanks go to Ms Eileen Hussey, who co-ordinated the appeal. Every box will make a difference to a child in Togo.
