Pupils at King’s School Rochester brought in new toys and gifts in December to donate to the Strood Community Project. The Project distributed hampers in the run up to Christmas to help those struggling financially and we are delighted to hear that our donations played a big part in making a real difference to the Christmases of 200 families.

Jonica Thomas from the Strood Community Project said, “Working in partnership with the Hygiene Bank, King’s School Rochester, Rochester Cathedral and other local churches, we are always grateful to receive donations of food, hygiene products and toys for families who particularly struggle over Christmas. It is thanks to this support that we were able to brighten up Christmas Day for lots of children who would have otherwise gone without.”

Ben Charles, Principal of King’s School Rochester, added, “This is a charity we have supported for the last few years and the response from our pupils and parents has always been overwhelming. At King’s School Rochester, we place a great deal of importance on caring for others and partnerships such as these allow us to extend that belief to our local community”.
