Saturday 19th December, a cold morning. One of our students did a very compassionate thing, when he saw a homeless man on the street. Instead of walking past him like the majority of people would, he helped him. He went to the local Greggs and bought a pizza slice, the man was silent but he was most definitely shocked at what Ethan did.
This has motivated Wilberforce Crew of XP to do something. We are now setting up a donation ‘bank’ exclusively for toys, essentials and food. When we collect enough items we will donate them to Doncaster and Mexborough foodbank.
A Food Bank is a non profit organisation that focuses on distributing food to those who cannot afford it. They store non-perishable food and distribute it for free to people in need.
This is a plea to our parents and friends of XP to buy one or two extra items in your next weekly shop in the hope that you’ll donate.
If you’d like to make a donation, please send this into school with your son or daughter who can pass this on to Wilberforce Crew.
We’re beginning with a single collection, and if all goes well we’d like to make this a termly event.
What you can donate!
Milk (UHT or powdered)
Fruit juice (carton)
Sponge pudding (tinned)
Rice pudding (tinned)
Tea Bags/instant coffee
Instant mash potato
Biscuits or snack bars
These things are important as they are full of proteins and vitamins for the body and restore your energy.
Students will be taking part in a charity fun run around the lake in fancy dress to raise money for ‘Stand up to cancer’. Students are invited to bring a suggested donation of £1 to wear fancy dress and complete the run/walk. There will also be face painting, hair colouring (non-permanent) and bake sale with all proceeds going to the charity. The fancy dress theme is ‘fairytale’, which just about covers everything!
