Rainford High Launch Easter Charity Campaign

PUPILS at Rainford High Technology College have collected over 1,000 Easter eggs for charity. The college has collected 1,192 Easter eggs as part of its latest whole school charity campaign for Spring 2017. Pupils from Year 7 to Sixth Form took part in the challenge, which is set to go a long way in offering much-needed support to nine local charities and organisations. The Easter eggs collected will be donated to Willowbrook Hospice, Zoë’s Place Baby Hospice, Wish FM, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital Charity, The Hope Centre and Four Seasons Health Care, as well as Orchard Care Homes, St Helens Young Carers and Rainford Victoria Care Home. The college has also been running a series of Easter egg hunts to raise awareness of the charity campaign, alongside special assemblies highlighting the work of the charities involved. Ian Young, principal at Rainford High, says: “Each year, various charity campaigns form an integral part of our school community, as we work together to give back to the charities and organisations that do so much in our local area. “Easter is a time for reflection and taking time to appreciate those around us, and so the Easter egg campaign is the perfect opportunity for staff and pupils to share their generosity. We can’t wait to hand over the Easter eggs and give a special gift to those receiving care.”
