Christmas Appeal

Nova Hreod Academy / Categories: News

Aquila 3 have been rallying around the whole of the school this month for donations of food, hot drinks, gloves, hats and blankets. All the items collected have been passed to Alternative Angels, a group of volunteers who provide hot meals to homeless and vulnerable people of Swindon, and will be shared between the Winter Project and the Swindon Caring Hearts Group, for distribution to people needing help over the winter.

Mrs Bekir, Aquila 3’s tutor, who came up with the idea, said:

“We have seen an overwhelming amount of generosity from both students and staff alike. A variety of donations from large bags of tea and coffee to tins of beans and soup, to warm hats, socks, gloves and blankets will help keep people without permanent homes and shelter warm this Christmas.” 

Students from Aquila 3 said:

“When Melanie from Alternative Angels came into school she told us all about the ways in which they help people that can’t help themselves. Some of the homeless people in Swindon aren’t much older than us and we were glad that we were able to collect food and clothing to be able to help them.”

Swindon Caring Hearts and the Haven's Christmas Care Project will provide a Christmas meal and company throughout the Christmas period. Anyone interested in volunteering can contact them via Swindon Caring Hearts' facebook page.
