Ellie's Advent Collection
Kingsleigh Primary School student Ellie, launched a Christmas food bank collection, with the goal of donating food to those most in need over the festive period. The idea snowballed as staff and students from both Kingsleigh Primary School and The Bourne Academy began to donate items to the cause. The collection now has over 50 festive hampers ready to donate to those in need in the local community.
Ellies mum, Mrs Luker, who works at The Bourne Academy says ‘Ellie decided to do “Ellies Advent Collection” and donate an item a day in December to people who are less fortunate. Ellie is passionate about helping others and she feels very proud that so many people have supported her in collections”.
Kingsleigh Primary School Headteacher, Mr James Lumber says "We are all really proud of Ellie at KPS, for her amazing efforts with her collection and for being so proactive, kind and caring. I know that the donations will be really appreciated in the community and they will make a real difference to families this Christmas."
