During October, students of Sir Henry Floyd Grammar school rallied round to once again support the Alfan Foundation Christmas wrapping project, sending Christmas presents to children in Ghana who would otherwise not receive anything. Over sixty students got involved in promoting the appeal around the school and helping out at the wrapping nights in the last week of the half term, with many more making generous donations of gifts and money to go towards shipping.
I was able to help out at both of the wrapping nights this year, and the experience was wonderful. It was great to see so many people getting involved across the year groups, bringing their friends and wrapping the gifts kindly donated by students and staff, amidst the organised chaos!
In total, 500 presents were wrapped, to be sent off to Ghana, helping children to have a merry Christmas! I am already excited for next year's appeal!
