Reverse Advent Calendar donations – 11th December-15th December

Reverse Advent Calendar donations – 11th December-15th December 2017
Dear Parents & Carers,

With the arrival of Christmas festivities, Ripple Primary School is sparing some thoughts in reaching out to the less fortunate through our Reverse Advent Calendar and an opportunity to remind children that giving is more rewarding than receiving. Please see attached flyer.

Your child’s class will receive a box for children to bring in a small item which can be an unwanted gift, toy, toiletries, sweets, stationery, game, dry or tinned food, stocking filler items e.g. socks, hats, gloves etc. to put into the box.

The donations will then be gifted to Salvation Army who supports our families and local community.

Thank you in advance for your kind donations.

Ripple Primary pupils donate presents to needy at Barking Salvation Army

“Rather than taking a free gift or chocolate during the advent period, pupils of Ripple Primary School in Suffolk Road, Barking, spent each day from December 3 to 15 contributing toys, books, and games for the borough’s poverty-stricken.”
