25 Christmas hampers donated to local care home

All of the students at Cowley Academy have joined together to give their season’s greetings by creating Christmas hampers for residents at the Gosberton House Care Home.

On Thursday 15th December 2022, Mr Roberts and Miss Earth who are Heads of House at Cowley Academy delivered 25 Christmas hampers to start a new seasonal tradition for the school where students in every form donate an item into a Christmas hamper.

Every form in the school created their very own Christmas hamper, which they decorated in their very own Christmas theme and every student then donated an item to put in the hamper. The range of items donated included chocolates, biscuits, tea bags, coffee, hot chocolate, marmalade, jam, tinned food, toiletries, socks and festive items.

When all of these small items come together in one hamper – it becomes a very generous and appreciated gift at a time of year when some people may be lonely. It can be a very difficult time for many residents at Gosberton House Care Home who may have limited contact with family or friends over the festive period so this act of kindness is much appreciated.

Gosberton House Care Home do an amazing job providing 24-hour care for those who find it difficult to cope at home or need more help than their personal carers can provide at home. They have 46 residents who require permanent or respite care in a residential setting.

Thank you to all of the students, families and staff who generously donated to this worthwhile initiative to spread some festive cheer.
