Dear Parents,

For this approaching Christmas we (year 12) at Wingate, in cooperation with Tenerife South Lions, a charity organisation, have decided to do a Secret Santa for the children of the orphanages of Tenerife. We would really appreciate any possible help you could give us in collecting the toys.

Please, if you decide to help, check that the toys are in very-good condition or new. The toys can be for any age group ranging from 3 years old up to 16 years old. Last year there was a bit of a shortage on presents for children aged 12-16, so please bear this in mind when searching for gifts. Stuffed animals, books, clothes and other appropriate items are all appreciated.
If you wish to help even further we would be really grateful if you could wrap the toys and add a label that identifies the suitable age group and gender. The collection of the toys has already begun and some of the students of Sixth Form will be informing senior school students during their assemblies.

Please ask your child(ren) to take the gift/s to his or her classroom and one of the Sixth Form will come and collect them each morning at registration.

We thank you for giving us your time and help in making this a special and joyful Christmas for the children of the orphanages.

The students of 6th form.
