This year Worthing High School is inviting 60 elderly people from the local Worthing area to have Christmas dinner at the school on 13 December 2018. These may be people who would otherwise spend Christmas Day alone, without family or a special meal. We would like to have a hamper for each of the guests to take away with them! Any spare Christmas hampers will go to the community nursing homes and charity organisations such as Salvation Army. Worthing Charity representatives from each form group will help serve our guests dinner on the day, and will be helping to distribute any extra hampers in the community the same week.
We have shared this with students this week, and asked for donations for the hampers to be brought into form over the next two weeks.
Possible contributions could be: A suitable box (shoe box, printer paper box or similar size), mince pies, Christmas pudding, a cracker, festive sweets or snacks, coffee, tea, tinned food, cereals, jam or marmalade, toiletries, a Christmas card, gloves, scarf, postage stamps or some festive wrapping paper to wrap the box up in!
Thank you in advance to students and parents for providing food items and gifts to go into the hampers.
