Donations to be shipped to Calais

Trinity School have been “overwhelmed” by generous donations and outpourings of support for refugees after it launched it’s appeal on October 12 to help those caught up in the refugee crisis.

Donations to the school-led drive included everything from toiletries, to clothes and shoes, thanks to the efforts of both staff and students.

PA to the headteacher, Mrs Maureen Hurst, on behalf of the school, said: “We’re very grateful to everyone who got involved – a particular mention should go to Jack Oades and Sam Prior, who gave up their time to help transport the donations.”

The school also gave special thanks to Gemma Ackrill, Max Oakman, Luke Leggett, Myles Swan and Maddie Cobb who were “essential” in helping to organise and sort the items.

The donations will be shipped to Calais and distributed amongst those in most in need.

Mrs Hurst added: “Trinity have hopefully made a difference to the lives of others, and the school should be very proud.

“The appeal was a huge success, and we are very grateful to everyone who contributed time, items and support.”
