Beech Hall Pupil Helps Homeless Appeal

Beech Hall School pupil, Lilly Hicks, has supported the homeless and vulnerable this Christmas by initiating a charitable project at Beech Hall.

Enthusiastic to raise the profile of Manchester’s homeless population, inspirational Lilly sought help from her fellow classmates and friends to donate to the Manchester Homeless Shoebox Appeal. After requesting permission from headmaster James Allen, Lilly and the other pupils rallied around to put together a bountiful donation.

The Beech Hall cohort collected thirty-five fabulously-filled and festive-wrapped boxes containing toiletries, gloves, hats, chocolate, biscuits and more, which were then handed over by Lilly to a representative from the appeal ran by the Manchester Street Angels.

Headmaster at Beech Hall School, James Allen comments: “I would like to extend my thanks and respect to Lilly for suggesting and promoting this project within our school community. It was a brilliant initiative and a great way to consider and help those who are less fortunate.

“As as a school, we inspire our children to think outside the box for creative solutions, especially when it comes to helping others. Lilly used her own initiative for this venture, a key skill that will help her in all aspects of life and something which we will continue to encourage throughout all ages.”
