Before Christmas Year 9 students at The Marches School, as part of the terms focus on the topic of ‘kindness’ launched an appeal for donations of coats. Over recent weeks the school has been inundated with all shapes and sizes of coats brought in by students, parents, staff and member of the local community.

Many people are not able to buy warm coats needed for this weather, therefore The Marches School with support from The Qube are running a two-day coat drive in Oswestry and these are taking place on: Friday 31st January at The Marches School Reception, 10:00am – 2:00pm and Saturday 1st February at The Qube, 10:00am – 12:00pm. This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone in need of a coat to come along and collect one, no questions asked. Any remaining coats that are not taken will then be donated to charity.

Mrs Sian Newey, Head of Academic Progress for Year 9 commented; “Charity is not just about how much money we can raise but also about the difference we can make. Our Year 9 students and the school community have really got behind the appeal. We thank everyone who has donated to the campaign and hope that this act of kindness will make a difference to the lives of those less fortunate in the local community.”
