Rainford High Ghana Project Toy Donation

Before Christmas I decided to try and use my blog to do something for charity. Last year we helped organised a toy donation for the Kirkby Toy Appeal, and it was a huge success.

This year we decided to ask for donations for the Rainford Ghana Project. This is a project organised by a local school. From 2010, the school have been sending around twelve students each year to Hope Academy High School in Kumasi, Ghana. While there, they have helped refurbish and further develop the school. Each year they go back taking resources for the school and nearby orphanage. They fund raise for items like duvets, shoes and toys. The trip also counts towards the Gold Duke of Edinburgh Award for the students who take part, which is a great reward for them.

We love the idea of this charity. Two separate communities coming together and creating strong working links and relationships. 

We were glad to be able to use our own working links to source some toy donations for the orphanage.

We received a Play To Learn Pond Pal and a Fisher-Price Jumperoo.

The toys were very kindly donated from Argos.

We are sure that they toys will be well-received and are very grateful for the generous donation from Argos. The project organisers were very happy with the donations and they will be taking them across to Ghana when they next go in the summer.

We were pleased to help! Thanks Argos :)
