Clairmont´s Charity Club is a weekly activity where the girls plan different fundraising activities. Their most recent initiative aimed to deliver joy to fellow children this Christmas.
In collaboration with the Swiss initiative “Action Paquets de Noel” which delivers gift boxes to to Belarus, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Albania and (where possible) Ukraine, the girls spent a number of weeks fundraising for and promoting the weekend event. Their goal was to deliver 100+ gift boxes full of essentials and gifts.
In total they raised an astounding CHF4’482 which allowed the group to shop for stationary, toiletries, chocolate, sweets, biscuits and other items to be packed and shipped in the gift boxes. Many toys were also generously donated by Aiglon staff, students and from the wider Villars community.
By the end of the weekend, the charity club – with assistance from over 40 Junior and Senior students – finished with an astonishing 105 gift boxes ready to be sent to children in Eastern Europe this festive season. We could not be prouder of their efforts and the contributions from the wider school community.
The boxes were delivered to Morges by Ms Harold and Mr Williams where they were packed and will be loaded onto a lorry headed for Moldova next week.
