Pupils from Weaverham High School spread festive cheer

Pupils at  Weaverham High School  got into the Christmas spirit as they helped deliver festive hampers to local residents.

Year 7, 8 and 9 pupils have been busy putting together 19 Christmas hampers for people living at Moreton’s Meade – the independent living apartments managed by Weaver Vale Housing Trust.

Each form class collected enough items to make up the hampers – one for each person tliving at Moreton’s Meade - with students packing and decorating the gifts themselves.

Pupils and staff from the school visited Moreton’s Meade to deliver the goodie-filled hampers in time for the festive period.

Olivia Davenport, Teacher at Weaverham High School said:

“My own grandmother lives in accommodation that’s very similar to Moreton’s Meade, and gets a hamper each year – so we thought it would be good to do something similar for elderly residents in the local community.

“The children have really embraced it – they put each individual hamper together themselves and they really wanted to do something for the local community.”

Mark Harnett, Team Leader at Weaver Vale’s Independent Living Team said:

“This is a fantastic gesture and we would like to say a big thank you to all the pupils and staff at Weaverham High School.

“A lot of care and thought has gone into producing these hampers, and they have brought a lot of happiness to everyone living at Moreton’s Meade. Our residents were very grateful for the hampers and it’s fantastic to see young people supporting their local community like this
