Children at St John the Baptist School are collecting good quality second hand or nearly new toys to donate to Dartmouth’s Community Chest. If you have any toys that could go to a child who would appreciate it then please drop any donations into the school by Thursday 19th December. The children are also collecting unwanted new gifts (small soaps, toiletries, chocolates etc.) for the residents of Beacon Court who often don’t receive any gifts at Christmas.
Headteacher Liz Hamilton commented, “We work hard to ensure that our children think of others who will not have as much as them this Christmas. We very much enjoy visiting our elderly friends at Beacon Court, singing carols together and sharing a bit of Christmas cheer. We would like to thank our families for their generosity and Christmas spirit.”
