Hanbury Hands Back at Christmas

12th December 2019

As part of their festive celebrations, children and staff at Hanbury C of E First School have been making sure they are giving back to the local community this Christmas time.

On Thursday 12th December, Year 4 pupils popped in to Primrose Hospice in Bromsgrove to sing for the patients during their Christmas party.

The whole school are also collecting donations for Droitwich Foodbank after taking an alternative look at the Christmas story.

“Voices of Advent” is a scheme run by the Archbishop of York’s Youth Trust.  By looking at the experiences of the characters in the Nativity, children learn about real, modern-day problems of homelessness, refugees and those who are particularly vulnerable at this time.

“If everyone brings in just one item, we can make a real difference to people who are struggling at this time of year,” said Headteacher, Andrew Payne.

“We have 6 core Christian Values at Hanbury: Friendship, Forgiveness, Kindness and Compassion, Respect, Endurance and Trust.

“It is wonderful to see our pupils actively demonstrating these values, especially at Christmas,” he added.
