Generous Liv Donates 50 Boxes To Operation Christmas Child

Year 7 pupil Liv Fox has put together an amazing 50 shoe boxes for the charity Samaritan’s Purse - Operation Christmas Child.

Liv used her own savings to purchase 50 boxes and then spoke to friends and family asking them for donations to help her fill the boxes. She also used her own money to purchase items to fill some herself. She then sorted all the boxes, labelled and sealed them last weekend dropped them all off at the local collection point.

Staff at the Samaritan Purse’s local warehouse were astonished by her donation as they had never had a child organise so many before.

Head of More House, Simon Robertson, was equally impressed saying, “Liv’s family are incredibly proud of her and so are we.  In this one kind act she has demonstrated in grand style all we could ever hope a Princethorpe pupil to be.”

Well done Liv, what a kind and generous girl you are.


Faith In Action

As part of the build-up to College Feast Day on December 6, we have the opportunity to put “Faith into Action”.  One way we can do this is for each member of the school community to bring in at least one item of non-perishable food that can be donated to the St Vincent de Paul Society.  The Society will distribute our donations to those in need in the local community just before Christmas.  This was very successful last year and items donated included pasta, tinned food, biscuits and rice.  Donations can be taken to the School Hub before Monday 16 December in time for delivery at Christmas.

Have you been away over half term? Maybe you have some left over foreign currency? Maybe there are a few old coins or notes lurking in the back of a drawer, a pocket or a handbag? Why not round them up and put them to good use? All donations would be gratefully received and all money raised will be split between UK projects of the SVP (St Vincent de Paul Society), including support for the homeless, elderly, handicapped and those coming out of prison and an overseas SVP project helping to fund secondary school education children - especially girls - in India.
