Little Green Junior School (LGJS) in Croxley has raised hundreds of pounds and collected donations for homelessness charity New Hope.
The school launched its Christmas gift bag appeal in November, thanks to Year 4 student Callum. Along with his parents, Callum has worked over the last few years to create gift boxes for families supported by New Hope. In 2023, the school decided to follow in his footsteps.
The school collected items and put together gift bags for the children of families supported by New Hope, including books, toys, stationery, toiletries, and Christmas decorations.
Duncan Roberts, headteacher at LGJS, spoke to CROXLEYnews and said: “We had an amazing response to the Christmas gift bag appeal and the children and families should be very proud of themselves.
“We received a total of 66 gift bags, ensuring that all 26 children and their families will receive something for Christmas. Some children from the school took the gift bags to the New Hope shop on New Road, and the team there will ensure all families receive their gifts.
“This really is an overwhelming response and an amazing act of kindness, especially in tough times. It is also lovely to share that the Year 4 production guests gave £200.62 for the New Hope charity.”
