St Swithun Wells School Christmas Giving Tree
During Advent, children have been collecting gifts for the elderly residents of Marie Louise Care Home in Romsey, Children, staff and parents collected a Christmas present label from our Giving Tree, each label had the name of a resident on it, and brought back a wrapped presents. Children then delivered the presents to the care home, entertaining the residents with carols and spending time talking to them. Some residents were emotional and one said "I will remember this Christmas for the rest of my life."
The school community was incredibly generous and their gifts were very much appreciated. The children recognised that they brought the Advent message of joy to those at Marie Louise House. For many of the residents this will be the only present they receive and perhaps their only Christmas visitor.
Thank you to everyone who sent in gifts.
