Blogs and News - St George's School For Girls, Edinburgh
Over the last two weeks in Lower School, we have been collecting lots of donations for a charity called Fresh Start. Fresh Start help people set up new homes for people that have been homeless. On Thursday, Iain from Fresh Start, brought his big van to Lower school to collect our donations. We managed to collect masses of stuff including cleaning materials, kettles, toasters, pots and pans and cups and plates. We had so much stuff that we made a chain of girls from Lansdowne Modern to his van in the playground.
We passed the boxes along the line- it was hard work but lots of fun. Ian was very grateful that we had collected so much. He said that now, people need our help more than ever because they are losing their jobs. He thanked us for supporting Fresh Start for so many years.
We would like to thank everybody for their generosity, especially RP and P6P who managed to collect the most. We hope that Ian will manage to unload all the donations as the van was very full and he had to do it all by himself!
