The Ferrers School Aspire, Achieve, Acclaim

    Christmas Hampers!

    Christmas Hamper Competition 2017

    For many years the students of The Ferrers School have run a Christmas Hamper Competition between the Tutor groups. Each Tutor group are given a large box to decorate and they donate groceries and Christmas goodies to fill it, these are later distributed to the elderly residents of Higham Ferrers, Nursing Homes and the local Food Bank. The decorated hampers are judged by students, staff and visitors to the School and winners from each year group are chosen. The winners are announced in our end of term assemblies, so watch this space!

    For the past few years we have invited Moulton College (Higham Ferrers Campus) to participate and help with deliveries and this has been a huge success.

    We have also been grateful for the support of many local businesses who have made fantastic donations of groceries and have helped to make this a truly town-wide community venture. This year we are also grateful to Collingwood Lighting who made a very generous donation of gifts for our hampers.

    All of this good will has enabled us to distribute smaller hampers of groceries and gifts to 125 elderly residents, the Shrubbery Nursing Home and to the local food bank.

    Some of our year 7 students helped us to deliver the hampers this year and they thoroughly enjoyed meeting and talking to the local residents.

    Thank you very much to students, parents , staff and local businesses with your help we have been able to spread some Christmas cheer throughout the town.

    Many thanks to our local businesses and shops, we couldn’t do it without you!
