Once again this year, the school has held a very successful Christmas Shoe Box appeal. Students from all year groups filled shoe boxes with toys, clothing, sweets and other presents and these boxes will be sent to children all over the world who are currently living in war zones or in poverty.

The school is supporting the Samaritan’s Purse ‘Operation Christmas Child’ campaign. This charity sends Christmas boxes to children all over the world who live in poverty, war affected areas, etc and who would therefore not otherwise receive Christmas presents. Students have been asked to make up as many shoe boxes as possible in their tutor groups. The tutor group with the most boxes in each year group will receive a prize.
On Saturday 24th May 2014, a group of students from Alec Hunter Academy, who belong to the school's Interact Club (which is a junior member of the Braintree and Bocking Rotary Club), visited the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance Centre at Earls Colne, Essex.
Over the past year, the students have been raising money for this charity by holding events such as raffles, boot sales and stalls. They were pleased to present the Essex & Herts Air Ambulance with a cheque for £800.
The Interact group would like to inform you that their chosen charity for 2013 – 2014 is the Essex Air Ambulance.
All monies raised by the group are through their own hard work and commitment in setting up a bric-a-brac stall at school events. The next event at which they will be raising funds will be the Alec Hunter Shopping Afternoon on Saturday 30th November from 12.00-3.00pm. Please come along and give your support.
