Charity AppealStudents at Sir Charles Kao UTC have joined together this term to participate in the Operation Christmas Child appeal.

Samaritan’s Purse organise the Operation Christmas Child appeal each year. The appeal asks for people to produce a small Shoe box of gifts to send to children in need throughout the world.

The fundraising event was led by the Student Senior Leadership Team. This involved a non-uniform day and cake sale. Through this they raised funds to send the shoeboxes and asked for donations of small gifts and toys to fill them.

Our students raised £137 and sent 12 boxes to the appeal through all their efforts. Once they had collected everything, they worked together to pack all the gifts into suitable boxes and send them off to Samaritan’s Purse.

Amber Read, Deputy Head Girl said:

“We are proud that we raised money to make a child’s Christmas amazing. Thank you to everyone for their help.”

“Hard work” fundraising for the appeal

Head of School Lisa Tooley said:

“I am very proud of our students for organising this fundraising effort, which was an amazing achievement despite being a small school. Their hard work will pay dividends for young people throughout the world. We are incredibly pleased with how much hard work they put into the event.”

Well done to all students for their hard work in preparing for this appeal. We also extend a special thank you to all parents who assisted with donations.
