We have continued our support and community contributions to Humbercare this half term by launching Aspire’s Shoebox for the Homeless Appeal.

Mrs Wilson and Mrs Ledger’s group 8A have worked hard on promoting and encouraging the whole school to come together to create shoebox gifts for Hull’s homeless. Students and staff were asked to contribute what they could from a list including: Warm clothes, hats, gloves, scarves, non-perishable foods, chocolate, sweets, personal hygiene products. Each tutor group was set a target of 2 boxes with many smashing their target!

40 wrapped shoeboxes, along with a collection of nearly new warm clothing, shoes, sleeping bags etc were donated.

The boxes were collected this morning by the charity Humbercare.

Well done Aspire! You’ve made a positive contribution to our local community this Xmas!
