Charity begins at home

25 November 2021

With Christmas fast approaching Mrs Gregory has again organised a donation bank for poor families living in Blackpool.

This year Aspire Academy are supporting the Salvation Army in Blackpool in their Christmas appeal and is asking for donations of small gifts or packaged food that can help give a little Christmas cheer to children, young people and the vulnerable who would otherwise have nothing to look forward to over the Christmas period.

"I know our Aspire community will come together and donate small gifts, toys, vouchers, tinned goods, biscuits and non-perishable items, so that they can then be redistributed to our local families in need," said Mrs Gregory.

Students and staff have until 17th December to hand in their donations at form time. All items donated will then be delivered to the Salvation Army in Blackpool for distribution.
