Rucksack Challenge





Dear Parents/Carers


NCS Action Day


We have decided to support a project which supports the homeless in Leicester by taking part in the Rucksack Challenge. This is a project which was very successful in 2016 when the National Citizen Service (NCS) provided 60 Rucksacks with essentials. This year they are aiming for 100 Ruckscks.


The NCS Action Day will take place on March 17 2018. We would like to support them by being a donation station. We would be grateful if you would provide some of the following items:


  • Adult sized jumpers, gloves, scarves, hats
  • Toothbrushes and toothpaste
  • Soap
  • Combs
  • Bottled Water
  • Blankets


If you would like to donate items bring them to school between Monday 29 January and Thursday 8 February 2018. Representatives from the NCS will be collecting the items on Friday 9 February 2018. Please note that the NCS will provide the Rucksacks so there is no need to donate those.


A member of staff is an NCS Graduate and this would also be supporting him with this task.


Thank you.


Warm regards
