One of the charities the school would like to help this Christmas is the ‘Christmas in a Box’ Charity Appeal run by Bedford Foodbank and All Nations Church, which aims to provide local people in crisis with hampers at Christmas. Next week, each form will divide up the items on the suggested shopping list (items include a box of chocolates or a carton of custard for example) and we are asking each boy to contribute one or two items from the list, if possible. One boy will also be asked to contribute a box wrapped in Christmas paper. The items need to be brought in by Wednesday 6th December. We hope the appeal will not only help 26 local families but also raise awareness among the boys about the difficulty many families face at Christmas time.
