LVS Hassocks supports Burgess Hill Christmas Hamper Project
Students at LVS Hassocks, an independent school in Sayers Common for young people with autism, met with the Lions Club last Friday (27 November) to hear how their much-needed donations to this year’s Christmas Hamper Project will be distributed.
Headteacher Jen Weeks and students from the school, handed over the donations to Ken Saunders and John Carter from the Burgess Hill District Lions Club. The school has joined together with local churches and organisations, including the Lions’ Club, for Burgess Hill’s annual appeal.
Donations are divided into Christmas hampers for people in need and delivered to approximately 250 families and individuals in the Burgess Hill area in time for Christmas.
Commenting on the donation, Head of School, Jen Weeks, said; “I’d like to thank staff, students and parents who supported this year’s appeal. The Food Hamper drive was well supported and will be distributed to those in need across the month of December. Now more than ever, we need to support our communities, and it was fantastic for students to meet with the Lions Club and hear how their donations will be used.”
Ken Saunders, President of the Burgess Hill District Lions Club, added: “I would like to thank LVS Hassocks for their significant contribution of food. The Lions, along with Burgess Hill Community Foodbank, Burgess Hill Youth, Burgess Hill Town Council and The Kings Church lead this project.
It is a great example of partnership working to support those most in need in our community.”
