In the run-up to Christmas, the Girls’ Division held a collection of unwanted jewellery to donate to Alzheimer’s Society. In support of this worthy cause, Old Girls, Girls’ Division Sixth Form students and staff all emptied their jewellery boxes to contribute. The donations included a wide variety of items, ranging in style from antique to very modern, and containing a number of beautiful brand new and unworn items still in their original boxes.
The collection was held following a Sixth Form assembly which informed the girls about the impact of Alzheimer’s and dementia.
Steph Larkin visited School on behalf of Alzheimer’s Society to collect the jewellery. She said, “I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the girls and alumni at Bolton School for their generous collection. There were over 350 pieces donated in total which is fantastic! I’d estimate that £600 would be raised from the collection for those affected by dementia who may access our local services in the borough. It’s vitally important that we are all more aware of those who may be affected by dementia and the symptoms they may be experiencing so that we can all unite against dementia and provide a safe and welcoming environment.”
The money will be raised through a combination of sales, raffles at Alzheimer’s Society events, and by recycling odd earrings and broken pieces. The jewellery collection was a great way for alumni, current students and staff to help the charity.
