THE grade 7s at St Marys DSG have gone out in full force to support The Robin Hood Foundation’s Love to Read campaign.

Wendy Wood, Grade 7 teacher, said that the pupils support the Robin Hood Foundation as their charity of choice and this term as they were involved in the 'Love to Read' campaign.

“Second-hand books that they no longer needed were donated and the rest of the senior primary girls were also encouraged to bring along a book to our Read Aloud day. These contributions swelled the number of books we will hand over to Robin Hood. Educational toys and Easter eggs are now being sourced until the end of the term. We thank all the girls for their generosity and commitment to helping others.”

Kim Griffith Jones, co-ordinator of Robin Hood Foundation, said: “Thank you St Mary's, Grade 7 pupils and teachers, for your incredible support. If you'd like to help us make a difference and uplift the 20 creches we will be visiting, donate your books or email robinhoodfund@telkomsa.net to find out more. Collection cut off - April 15, 2017.”
