Children and parents at Beech House, the Infant Department of Bolton School, have spent the past week collecting a huge haul of Christmas gift boxes for boys and girls aged 4-11 years, which will be distributed to families in need across the town. 

The collection has been organised by Miss Amani Niaz, a Y1 teacher at the Infant School. Pitching her ‘A sprinkle of kindness appeal’ to parents, she said: “Having been inspired by the Marcus Rashford’s recent campaign and in light of everything that has happened this year, we would like to try and make a difference to less fortunate children this Christmas.  

“At my previous school there were lots of families struggling for food, clothes and presents at Christmas. A lot of parents didn’t have jobs, children were in care and now this year many families are struggling even more so. When I worked there I donated items every year and continued to do so when I came to work here. This year I decided to open up the appeal to my friends, family, colleagues and parents and Beech House. It has been amazing to see so many people being generous and I cannot thank them enough. It will make so many families happy this Christmas.”
