A surprise for Chestnut Tree House!
Chestnut Tree Hospice visited our Key Stage 3 years for a very special assembly.
Key Stage 3 had a visit from The Chestnut Tree House, who were so impressed with our milk bottle top donations for their appeal, plus our new collection box designed by a talented Year 11 student!
Chestnut Tree House is the children’s hospice for East and West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and South East Hampshire and cares for 300 children and young adults from 0-19 years of age with progressive life-shortening conditions. Slindon College encourages students to collect milk bottle tops as part of an initiative that recycles the plastic tops and makes a donation to various charities – Chestnut Tree House being their charity of choice.
This eco-initiative was started by churches in Chichester, who are collecting milk bottle tops for recycling to reduce the amount of waste being sent to landfill.
Milk bottle tops must be clean, foil and sticker free, they can be any colour but please do not put any other type of bottle top in, as they are not accepted by the recycling company. Send them in to us at Slindon College and our PE, PSHE & RE Teacher Mr Pinney will donate them!
