Operation Christmas Child 2012

Once again The Gateway Academy took part in the annual Christmas Shoe Box Appeal.   Organised by Samaritan’s Purse, the yearly project is aimed at children who are the victims of war, famine, poverty and natural disasters.

Boxes were collected from tutor groups and individual members of staff and students for this worldwide appeal.  This year the boxes have gone to children in Belarus, Serbia or the Ukraine.  For many of them it will be their first experience of opening a present at Christmas.
