Students from Myton School in Warwick have been collecting unwanted toys and gifts to donate to Bromford’s Big Hug appeal for families in need at Christmas.

All 265 Year 9 students have taken part, embracing the true spirit of the festive season.

Peter Stone, Year 9 Team Leader, at the school said: “We support Bromford because it’s local and it helps a number of good causes.”

Elaine Browne, Enterprise Manager for Bromford said: “We want to say a big thank you to Myton School for supporting us and our customers. It’s good to know that they will be helping to spread some joy and happiness at Christmas though their generosity.

“Big Hug aims to collect gifts which will be distributed to Bromford customers who find themselves in temporary housing over the festive period. There has been overwhelming support again this year which means that every one of our vulnerable customers in our temporary schemes will receive a gift to open.

“Presents will be delivered by us to a child or adult in one of our accommodation hostels. These individuals or families may have very little to look forward to on Christmas day and such kindness makes a real difference.”

Head Teacher, Paul MacIntyre, said: “Myton School has a long history of fundraising and community support, with students raising approximately £10,000 annually for good causes. Students and staff wish Bromford all the best with their appeal.”
