Students from across Bruton School for Girls donated over 600 hygiene products to the Choose Love charity to help refugees in Greece who have been impacted by the Moira Camp fires.
In the first charity event of the new academic year, girls collected essential items including toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel and sanitary products. The collection was organised by the school’s charity committee who made it a competition between the four school ‘Halls’ to see who could gather the most items. The winner was Montacute Hall.
Headmistress, Jane Evans, said: “This was a fantastic effort by the girls. The small act of being able to wash your hair, bath your child or clean your teeth will have a big positive impact on someone’s physical and mental health and I’m very proud of the girls’ efforts to help people who have been so cruelly displaced.”
The Choose Love Help Refugees charity provides emergency aid and long term solutions where they are most needed. The charity supports over 120 projects across Europe, the Middle East and the US-Mexico border.
