Rotary Shoe Box Scheme 2022
The Interact club wanted to fill more boxes this year than last; and we are delighted to announce that we succeeded!!!
Over 50 boxes were collected after the holidays and will be sent to disadvantaged adults and children in Eastern Europe to help support those with a need greater than our own. CLAN classes were involved again this year and rose to the challenge of filling at least 3 boxes each.
The boxes will be sent to countries such as the Ukraine, Romania and Moldova. Our thanks extend to the Rotary Club of Alford for involving us in the scheme and collecting them for us.

MacMillan Coffee Morning 2022
By the Alford Academy Interact Group
We did it! We had an actual event! And made £232.52 in cash donations and we received with £47 in online donations making a total of £279.52. This is enough to make a huge difference for those using the help MacMillan provide and we are absolutely delighted! This is the most we have raised in a coffee morning for years so we cannot thank everyone enough.
The coffee morning is the first organised event by the Interact Club, this year we were able to use the facilities in HE to bake our own fine pieces to sell to staff. Diane Forbes helped pupils to create a delicious array of tray bakes and ensure we had enough to go around all staff. The staff met in the school staff room which the pupils decorated and set up with their fine pieces and the urns with hot water to make plenty tea and coffee.
The pupils had to plan the event from scratch, order ingredients which Mrs Watt ordered for us and with the help of Mrs Harper set up ready for baking. Once baked the pupils labelled all the ingredients and set up the event.
This year we were grateful of online banking which helped everyone to contribute.
As ever the group is very grateful to everyone who donated this year and we are already looking forward to a bigger coffee morning next year.
