A time for giving

image As is traditional at this time of year, the Council of Social welfare directed by Mari Carmen Alonso, along with the Association of Disabled of Bigastro, visited the elderly and the infirm to bring Christmas to them.

In the picture you can see the mayor along with students who sang carols and brought gifts with them.

When I was a young teacher at Anfield, we used to make up parcels of food for the elderly and get the hardest villains from the fifth year (now Yr 11) to deliver them.

Both parties benefited because, the elderly were very appreciative of the gift and the pupils showed a caring side not evidenced before in school.
