Awesome Aiden’s charity collection
Kind hearted children from across the school have donated more than one hundred unwanted toys to give to a local charity.
The idea came from Year 4 pupil Aiden Dass. He announced his idea in a school assembly just before the half term break and since then has been inundated with donations.
In just three weeks eight year old Aiden has managed to collect a range of toys – including everything from books to cuddly camels – from pupils in the nursery, prep and senior schools. He’s donated them to the West Bromwich branch of children’s charity Barnardo’s.
Aiden said: “I wanted to do something kind for children that aren’t as lucky as me. Some children don’t have lots of toys or games to play with. I hope that we make lots of children happy with our gifts.”
Samantha Berry, Early Years and Outreach Lead from Barnardo’s West Bromwich North Children’s Centre Cluster added: “We are sincerely grateful to all the staff and pupils at Hydesville Tower School who have been so very generous with their donations.”
The collection of toys will be re-distributed to local children who visit the charity’s children’s centres.
