Bring and Buy BonanzaJo Leeson
Thank you to all who donated, helped and bought at our Bring and Buy Sale, where we raised a whopping £133.39 for The Sidings Charity in Malton which is run by Ryedale YMCA and offers help to those facing homelessness. Carly McGinty, Manager of Ryedale YMCA came into school to collect the money and to talk to a group of Year 7 students who are participating in the Archbishop of York Trust Youth Award. Whilst with us Carly assisted the students in wrapping the gifts they had brought in themselves for the residents to open on Christmas Day. Miss Nichols 7Y Youth Award teacher said “The students found it really interesting to listen to Carly and it helped them to understand the difficulties which some of our young people face on a daily basis”. The money raised will help towards the residents Christmas lunch. Many thanks to Carly for taking the time to drop in and see us, we wish all the residents and staff a Happy Christmas.
