Being Human Club – Charity Events – Secret Santa and Secret Shaikh

By 21 June 2019August 23rd, 2020No Comments

During the school year generous Pleckgate students and their families have been helping pensioners and children alike.  The Year Seven ‘Being Human Club,’ which takes part in such events as random acts of kindness and giving to charity, organised a Secret Santa at Christmas and collected presents for a Secret Sheikh at EID.

These have been organised by Religious Education teacher Miss Wheatley, in conjunction with One Voice Blackburn, and she says the school has been overwhelmed by the generosity of parents, students and the Pleckgate community.

“At Christmas all years donated items like scarves and clothes which we took into Springfield Care Home as some of their residents may not have family to give them presents,” said Miss Wheatley.

“At Eid our ‘Being Human Club’ collected toys, games and teddies for those less fortunate than themselves and were inundated with gifts, everyone being really generous.”

“It’s really rewarding,” said one student Hafsah Khonat. “When we took the presents to the Old People’s Home it was so nice to see how happy they were about it.

“We hope the children like these presents too.”
