At The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College students across all year groups are being given the opportunity to join Read for Good’s sponsored readathon which encourages young people to read for enjoyment and will raise money which will be used to benefit children across 30 hospitals in UK.

Kind natured students and staff from The Avon Valley School and Performing Arts College have donated many items which will be used to make Christmas hampers which are to be distributed to young people across Warwickshire who have recently left foster care.

The school’s festive collection was made to support an initiative, which is organised by Norma Wilson; a member of Warwickshire County Council’s fostering service. Over the last 18 years, Norma has created hampers for the Warwickshire Fostering Service to go to young people and asylum seekers who have recently come out of foster care and now live alone without family support.

Having begun by only creating a few hampers, over the last couple of years the amount has snowballed to well over two hundred. As well as Christmas gifts, the hampers also contain essentials such as socks, gloves, mince pies, biscuits, soups, toothbrushes, sheets and anything else that might be of use.

Alison Davies, Headteacher, said, “This year our students and staff have shown their generosity by collecting for a number of good causes including Rugby Food Bank, the Red Box Project and the hampers created by Norma, which I am sure will be well received by young people across the county.”
