Helping hands board

Our inspiration board is a showcase of the fantastic volunteering work Pod schools are doing and the difference they're making in their communities.

Yarrells Preparatory School

Our Year 7 and 8 children made some mince pies at Christmas and took them to the local homeless shelter. We also collected as many socks, sleeping bags and warm jumpers as we could to help the homeless in the cold winter. We also took fruit and other snacks to the shelter.

We carried out a litter pick at a local old people's home. We litter picked around the home's grounds and also the out boarders and grass berge.

The ECO team asked for donations of tins of food. We entered a competition with a local charity called 'Tin Sculpture'. Once we had submitted our entry, the charity collected the tins to donate to a local food bank. This is to help fight against holiday hunger.
