Students at Miltoncross have been raising money for their annual Christmas Hamper Appeal to support the Rethink Homeless Shelter, Central Point, in Kingston Road and other local charities.

Students have been taking part in an inter-tutor challenge to make a Christmas hamper to support the local shelter.

Students have designed and made a range of hampers, from Christmas tree-shaped boxes to gingerbread houses to Santa trains, then they have donated items including tins and toiletries to fill the hampers for Central Point so Miltoncross can support the work that this charity does within our local community.

In order to support this even further, students raised money during a Christmas jumper day last week when students were asked to wear a jumper for a donation.

Topped off with a cake sale, this event raised even more money to support local charities.

In addition to buying more donations such as blankets and much needed clothing donations for the Hamper Appeal, senior students from Miltoncross delivered Christmas cards and donations of £50 to three charities in and around the local area, including Age Concern, Portsmouth And Chichester Dog Rescue and Enable Ability .
