The VOC decided that the toys left over from our in school toy 'sale' should be donated to Crook's local charity shops to give to children in our town. We went to St Cuthbert's Hospice Charity Shop this morning and we were welcomed by the lovely Diane, who The CLT have previously worked with for our Crown Competition last year. Diane and the staff were very happy to take the toy donations and explained that if the toys didn't all fit in the Crook shop they could be shared amongst the other nine shops they have; we thought it was lovely that not only could these donations help Crook, but the wider community also.
The leftover books we had donated are going to support KS2 with our new in school reading scheme so thank you to all the amazing books families donated too.
Well done to The VOC for their great idea for the community and being positive role models for our school whilst being out in our town; they were polite, sensible and friendly to everyone. Good job team!
