BVGS Giving Tree at the Gracechurch

Sixth form students have been busy collecting gifts for those in need as part of the Giving Tree concept devised by Year 12 Elijah Nix.

Bishop Vesey's Grammar School, with the kind donation of a tree from Wm Wheats and Sons, and the support of the Gracechurch centre, have installed and decorated a ‘Giving Tree’ in the Gracechurch centre, next to the Grotto.
This idea was initiated by Elijah Nix of L6 II of BVGS Sixth Form. Staff and students here at BVGS are supporting this project, and went to the Gracehurch centre on Wednesday 27th November to dress the tree.
The intention of the tree is to bring people together at Christmas, and for those who can afford to spare a little to help out with members of the community who go without this Christmas time.
The Giving Tree works by those in need speaking to volunteers manning the tree and attaching their need to the tree. Those able to donate, simply take a card off the tree, purchase the item and then return the paper with the need written on and the item back to volunteers at the Giving Tree. 
This is a great initiative, which hopefully will spread some Christmas cheer to those in need, and give those able to donate a chance to give to their local community this Christmas.
