In mid-March the Head Boy, Head Girl and Prefects wrote to the Finton House community with a proposition to help Ukrainian refugees.
The pupils had been touched by the operation at the White Eagle Club in Balham, which is a Polish centre local to our school that we have used in the past for events such as the Christmas pantomime. The White Eagle Club have been collecting donations for Ukraine with the help of numerous volunteers, and our pupils wanted the Finton family to support them by donating items from a list of those things most needed by refugees.
On March 22, the children travelled to the White Eagle Club in a mini bus packed full of donations that were generously brought in by our community. They were lucky enough to meet some of the wonderful volunteers and see the truly inspiring operation in action as they helped them unload the items. As the mini bus drove away, some of the volunteers gathered outside to clap and the children clapped back to them.
