Alford’s Queen Elizabeth’s Grammar school’s Chamber Choir entertained visitors at Alford Day Centre before the Christmas break.
Forms then presented 21 hampers they had made and filled with gifts.
Pupils showed great care and initiative with their gifts, which included a range of innovative designs including a Santa’s
sleigh, a snowman, Olaf from Disney film Frozen, an elf and a Christmas toy soldier all filled with Christmas fayre.
The elderly at the Day Centre really appreciated the wonderful gifts and the students enjoyed the opportunity to join in the festivities at the Day Centre.
Headteacher, Miss Angie Francis, said” “It is important that our students have the opportunity to support the local community. Students visit the Day Centre each Thursday lunchtime and have formed friendships with the elderly who attend. Form groups thoroughly enjoy designing and making up the Christmas hampers and it is a real pleasure to go down to the Day Centre to give them our gifts.”
In addition the school has made hampers for the new Alms house residents this year and Year 12 students delivered their hampers to the elderly in their homes.
