Open Hands Appeal 2017

Our fifth annual Open Hands Christmas Charity appeal took place this month, where all tutor groups in the Academy were given the opportunity to collect as many food and toiletries hampers for the city’s most vulnerable people.

Despite this being our fifth appeal, it was the first time we have launched it in collaboration with our colleagues at The Winstanley School. To gain a greater insight in to how the Charity operates, five year 10 students from Bosworth and five year 7 students from The Winstanley School went to the Open Hands Compassion Centre to find out more. They then delivered an assembly to their respective student bodies and informed them of what items students could bring in to support the cause. Compassion for those less fortunate and a desire to improve the world around us are core to our values across the LiFE Multi-Academy Trust, and the teamship and comradery demonstrated throughout the collection was awe-inspiring. At Bosworth we managed to raise a total of 1,425 items which is a fantastic effort and clearly shows, once again, that compassion for those less fortunate is something we are passionate about. A massive thank you to all who contributed. The people at Open Hands are incredibly grateful and those items will go a long way in ensuring that more people have a Merry Christmas this festive season.
