HHSC hamper delivery

CARING students collected a range of goodies to make up into hampers to be distributed to a variety of groups and charities.

Haslingden High School’s charity team Help Haslingden Support Charities organised a collection of items from students and teachers and then combined the goods into hampers for the Salvation Army, Women’s Refuge, a youth homeless shelter and local residents.

Alice Tiler, 14, from Year 10, has been a member of the team since she was in Year 7.

She said: “It has been good fun collecting all the items in and then making up the hampers. We created a pet food hamper for the RSPCA, collected children’s toys for the Women’s refuge and tins for the Salvation Army.

“Most forms have brought a lot of items in for the hampers and one form brought so much they filled their own hamper.

“Everyone is always really happy when they receive their hamper and it is really nice to see the reaction on the faces of the staff when we hand them over.”

Teacher mentor Lisa Southee said: “Once again staff, students and family members have given generously and we have been overwhelmed by their kind-hearted generosity.

“Stocks of cat and dog food are low at the RSPCA in Oldham so the hamper will be particularly well received by them.”
