Christ's College Guildford amasses shoebox mountain

Date: 03 December 2012
Students and staff at Christ's College threw themselves behind Operation Christmas Child's 'Shoebox Appeal' filling the school hall with a tangible demonstration of seasonal goodwill this December.

Every year group, from Year 7 to the Sixth Form, filled shoeboxes with toys and gifts with tutor group 8S winning the competition for the biggest contribution, managing an amazing 28 boxes!

English teacher Mrs Johnston said: 'This means that 142 children, who would have had nothing, will have something to unwrap at Christmas.

'We are very proud of our relationship with Operation Christmas Child and feel that it is an important project to be a part of.

'Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make this year a success. Special thanks must go to Director of Worship Mr Payne and the wonderful ladies in the office! We look forward to an even more amazing amount of shoeboxes next year.'
