On Thursday July 2 the student council at Bucklands Beach Primary ran their annual mufti-day and also collected packaged food, rain jackets and shoes, blankets, sleeping bags and duvets, as well as new pyjamas. The donated items were then given to The Breakfast Club and the Middlemore Foundation to help people facing difficult times at the moment.
Members of the student council were on hand to receive the goods before school in the office area. There was a steady stream of children through the office area which quickly filled with all the goods donated. The gold coin donation for the opportunity to wear mufti was also given to the two charities.
A representative from The Breakfast Club was very surprised and grateful for the number of donated goods from the students.
