It is still a little way off, but Christmas will be here before we know it. It has been a tradition at the ASMS since 2006 to donate non-perishable food items and small gifts to the Salvation Army or St Vincent de Paul, who then make up hampers to give to families in need.
Next term I will start our collection of items such as cans of fruit or vegetables, packets of pasta or rice and Christmas treats like puddings, Christmas Cake or anything else you would like to donate.
We will also be collecting gifts such as books, soft toys, sport equipment, perfume, aftershave, colouring in books and pencils, puzzles – anything a child, or teenager might like.
Thanks in advance – I hope we have a successful Christmas drive.
