MHS Tags on the Tree 2021
Some members of our school team were horrified to see a Christmas tree being put up in November, but it was all for a very good cause as you will see…
A few weeks ago at Milford Haven School a very special Christmas tree was decorated with tags, and on each tag was the anonymised details of a child living within our catchment area. These are all children that are affected by deprivation and have been referred to PATCH for the toy appeal this year.
All members of our school staff team were invited to take part in ‘Tags on the Tree’. All they had to do was pick a tag off the tree, buy a gift for that child up to the value of £10, wrap the gift attaching the tag they took, and then pop the gifts back under the tree. Many of our departments decided to forgo traditional Secret Santa this year and instead donated gifts to PATCH via ‘Tags on the Tree’.
Ms Morris, Headteacher, has said, “This year has been very humbling for many of us and we are possibly more aware now than ever of the great need within our school community. This is just one of many school projects that are in the pipeline to inject as much support as we can into our community over the coming months, with Christmas in particular set to be a challenge for many so every little bit of help will no doubt go a long way.”
Our amazing staff team, and indeed the whole community of Milford Haven, is well known for its generosity so a huge and heartfelt thank you to everyone who has supported this project. 82 gifts have been collected by staff here at Milford Haven School, and will be delivered to PATCH this week by our Head of House team to be distributed across our community to those in need.
This project is evidence that together we can make a real difference to local families and the Christmas they experience this year, and we are extremely proud to be supporters of the Patch Charity
