Coventry Refugee Centre

Throughout May, Year 8 ran a collection for the Coventry Refugee and Migrant Centre. Matthew Martin, Katie Haycock and Beth Brookes were all involved in delivering assemblies to each House to help raise awareness of the terrible situations some people are currently having to deal with and to ask for the school’s help in supporting the donation drive.

On the Wednesday before half term Miss Whitworth and Mr Howells travelled to Coventry to deliver the donations from the Shipston High Students; to say the team were grateful is an understatement! Jackie and the team were overwhelmed by the support and the donations that Shipston had offered and were very keen to want to pass on their thanks to all the students at Shipston who had donated.

On behalf of the Coventry Refugee Centre, Miss Whitworth and everyone at Shipston High School thank you to all parents for their generous donations. Toni the Centre Director at the Coventry Refugee Centre has written to the school ‘we were overwhelmed by the generosity of all the pupils at Shipston High. Our destitute clients will be very grateful for the food and it helps enormously to know that there are many people in the UK who really care about their plight’.

As always, our students have done us very proud!
