It’s been a strange year for the entire planet, but that hasn’t stopped a group of students trying to spread a little Christmas cheer to the residents in a local care home.

Sahib Sidhu, who is a Year 7 student at Charters School in Sunningdale, read an article in his local newspaper asking the community to write Christmas cards to the residents of St. Mark’s Bupa care home in Maidenhead. Sahib went a step further and roped in his entire Tutor Group to get behind the project. He assigned a resident to each of his friends so that they could write a personalised card and encouraged them to supply a small gift.

This project really embodies Charters School’s motto of Unity, Respect, Excellence.

Mr Espensen, Sahib’s Tutor said, “I am incredibly proud of Sahib for wanting to do something positive for the older residents in the borough. This has been a difficult year for everyone and it is wonderful to see the entire Tutor Group get behind the project and spread a little Christmas Cheer.”
