On the same day as the High Sheriff of Suffolk attended the College, each tutor group revealed their Christmas Hampers that they had put together for people in the local community. School Chaplain, Brynn Bayman, said: “The pupils have spent the last few weeks designing and making bespoke Christmas Hampers. Each hamper is unique, full of lovely treats and festivity. The hampers will then be distributed in our community, to those folk who perhaps need a bit of cheer at this time or as a way to say thank you from the pupils for all they receive. Suffolk is a very special community and as the High Sheriff mentioned in his sermon, “Doing good makes you feel good.”

Programme Coordinator, Geraldine Clarke, said: “‘It would be a challenge to find someone who does not like a hamper full of goodies! Therefore, knowing the joy they can bring and as we include consideration of gratitude and giving in our Years 10 and 11 FLOW programme, it seemed a good idea to launch ourselves into making Christmas Hampers. This activity has brought various strands of our College together: the Charity Committee, tutors and our Chapel programme as we have worked together. Using his links with our local community, Rev Bayman identified various people who would particularly enjoy a Christmas Hamper as a special treat after personally experiencing a tough year. Delivery of the hampers has already started with a few more to go out over the next few days.”
