Silverdale Primary Academy pupils turn stocking fillers to support Sock Appeal

The shoe was on the other foot when pupils at Silverdale Primary Academy near Newcastle-under-Lyme turned stocking fillers in support of the ‘Fill a sock for the Homeless’ appeal.


Launched by Help for the Homeless CIC in Chell Heath, the appeal encourages people to fill socks with various items, which are then handed out to those who need them.


And as part of its commitment to help local charities, Silverdale Primary Academy lent its support, with its kind hearted pupils and staff donating a mountain of filled socks.


Commenting on the appeal, Year 5 pupil Liam Baddeley said:


“This is our way of helping those less fortunate than ourselves, collecting food and other things for people who don’t have them.”


The school has also been collecting items for a local foodbank, following an earlier collection as part of its Harvest Festival in October.


Added Headteacher Lindi Nejrup:


“As a school committed to providing our children with an education with character, it’s important that our children recognise the importance of helping others, hence our support not just for the sock appeal, but other local charities as well.”
