Old Buckenham High School helps homeless

Charity begins at the High School
Every year students at Old Buckenham High School enjoy a tradition that has become deeply embedded over the years. This is the Hampers for the Homeless competition where the whole school gets involved by donating food and then decorating hampers to be donated to the local Norfolk charity St Martins Housing Trust in time for Christmas. The hampers are judged for best decoration and most filled with the winning forms receive small prizes for their efforts. 
This year judging was carried out by representatives from St Martins, from Attleborough Sainsburys, who provided the prizes, and the school's deputy head. The clear winners were class 10F who created a beautiful house filled with all sorts of food under the snowy roofs and having flashing lighting too.. They were followed by classes 8F, 8B and 9T who provided other decorated boxes of items. All were then loaded into a van and taken off to Norwich to be distributed to those in need.
