Before Christmas, form classes were asked to donate items for a range of Christmas hampers which were to be donated to local residents who were both elderly and likely to be alone at Christmas. Jill Preston, a former student and daughter of one of the recipients got in touch with us:

“Thank you for your donation of food and Christmas treats to my father, an elderly (92 in February!) resident of Accrington who was a client of Willowbrook Care services in Oswaldtwistle.

I was very touched by the kind donation Rhyddings High School organised. I am an ex pupil of the school leaving in 1973 to do ‘A’ levels at Accrington college of FEd, then on to Leeds University – so it was a lovely surprise to have contact with the school again!

All the best for 2012 Jill Preston (nee Sandwell).”

Rhyddings is proud to continue to support our various charity endeavours, in particular our local community.
