Prep school shows gratitude with NHS goody bags
Pupils at Solihull Preparatory School have personalised the gifts with handwritten messages
Pupils, parents and staff at Solihull Preparatory School are taking part in an initiative to show their gratitude in support of the NHS workers.
More than 450 families have received #NHSstaffrock kits to create goody bags for NHS key workers battling the coronavirus pandemic.
The sets include four bespoke themed postcards featuring Solihull Preparatory School’s Scuffle and Twitch mascots, and a list of suggested gift items to include such as a treat or wellbeing product.
Pupils have been invited to personalise the postcards with handwritten messages, colourful drawings and happy photographs.
“We wanted to show the NHS staff how incredibly grateful we are for all they are doing,” said Mark Penney, head of Solihull Preparatory School.
“This is a small gesture which we hope will brighten their day. Our wonderful pupils are kind and creative and I’m delighted that this initiative allows them to harness and amplify both great qualities.
“Our families have followed all Government guidelines in the packing and production of the goody bags and our parents have bandied together into a small army of delivery and collection volunteers to help us complete the project.”
