Lyndon School box up festive spirit

Solihull Editorial 24th Nov, 2022   0

SHOEBOXES filled with Christmas goodies have piled high at a Solihull school thanks to kind-hearted pupils.

Lyndon School teamed up with charity Teams4u and the National Shoebox Appeal this year to help provide Christmas presents to vulnerable children and families around the world.

The 186 boxes have been filled with warm clothes, games, toys and toiletries and will be delivered to communities across Ukraine, Ukraine, Moldova, Georgia, Bosnia and Romania, through schools, nurseries, hospitals and orphanages.

Over the last ten years, Lyndon have donated over 700 shoeboxes to the appeal, which have been sent to eight different countries.

Abid Butt, principal at Lyndon School said: “At Lyndon we teach our learners to continuously look at the world around them and how they can make positive impact through small changes.

“The shoeboxes are a brilliant example of how learners can support a wider cause and develop their own character to become compassionate and kind citizens, in their own communities and the wider world.”
