Warriner School builds Food Christmas Tree for Salvation Army
Students donate enough items to reach the school’s reception ceiling
Kind hearted students at The Warriner School in Bloxham have built a Food Christmas Tree tall enough to reach the ceiling of the school’s reception. Now all the donated items in the tree will be given to The Salvation Army.
The school attempted its first ever Food Christmas Tree last year. The installation is created using tins of food and non-perishable items which are brought in by students.
This year the school wanted the tree to be bigger and better than last year and so set the challenge to reach the reception ceiling. On Wednesday evening the school tweeted to say the goal had been achieved.
Each of the school’s houses has been in competition to see which of them can bring in the most donated items. Much to the students’ amusement the reward for the winning house has been announced as seeing the head of the winning house dressed as an elf for the day.
The school has thanked everyone who helped. They said: “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone for your generosity in donating food that will be delivered to the Salvation Army tomorrow.”
