Lilly Hicks, a pupil from Beech Hall School, sought help this Christmas from her classmates and friends to donate to the Manchester Homeless Shoebox Appeal.
Beech Hall collected 35 boxes containing toiletries, gloves, hats, chocolate, biscuits and more, which were then handed over by Lilly to a representative from the appeal ran by the Manchester Street Angels.
As as a school, we inspire our children to think outside the box for creative solutions, especially when it comes to helping others
Headmaster at Beech Hall School, James Allen comments: “I would like to extend my thanks and respect to Lilly for suggesting and promoting this project within our school community. It was a brilliant initiative and a great way to consider and help those who are less fortunate.
“As as a school, we inspire our children to think outside the box for creative solutions, especially when it comes to helping others. Lilly used her own initiative for this venture, a key skill that will help her in all aspects of life and something which we will continue to encourage throughout all ages.”
