With the full reopening of schools this summer term, we have been able to start working normally again. We were delighted to hear from several of our brilliant regular schools including, St Margaret’s Prep, Halstead, Essex and The Dragon School, Oxford who were both continuing to fill pencil cases for us. St Margaret’s choosing to help their local Trussell Trust Braintree Foodbank who they have a brilliant relationship with and the Dragon who have helped various local charities in the past, now donating to Milton Keynes Trussell Trust Foodbank who recently contacted us for help.
We have also taken on several more partner schools – Corbet School who hopes to partner up with their local Trussell Trust in Shrewsbury and Middleton Educates Together in Co Cork who have teamed up with their local foodbank. We are really excited to be able to help children in Republic of Ireland as well as throughout the UK and we will be mentioning more about the 12 year old girl who made this happen.
Other donations are also coming flooding in, recently Crown Publishing sent 3 different deliveries to 3 charities in need once we had located the best place for what they were offering. Many individual families have still been bundling up their best stationery and getting in touch with us to discover the best place to send it on. We have also had an amazing donation from 2 Swedish teenagers who have started a business selling animal conservation pencils.
Leaving you with a quote from one of the wonderful children at Ardingly Prep.
Keep in touch everyone and enjoy half term. Susie x
