Foundation Comes Together for Christmas Hamper Campaign
Whole School Charity

Children and parents from across the Bolton School Foundation, from Nursery to Sixth Form, stepped up once again this Christmas to smash their target of collecting 2,500 selection boxes for Urban Outreach’s Christmas Dinner on Jesus campaign.

This is the tenth year that Bolton School has taken part in the charity event, which involves the School collecting one or more items for hampers that are delivered to those families and individuals in most need in the town. This year, Urban Outreach were delivering chicken, vegetarian and halal hampers as well as individual collections. The target for the School was to procure 2,500 selection boxes and, at last count, 2,848 had been collected by the eight schools within the Foundation with donations still coming in.

Forty Sixth Form students made up six teams who encouraged pupils around the campus in the campaign and helped with the counting and collecting of items. Students also undertook several fundraising events – a bake sale and a raffle at the community Tea at the Riley event – with the monies collected used to buy more boxes.
