This year Stead Lane Primary School is taking part in Metro Radio’s Mission Christmas appeal. It is estimated that in the North East a staggering 47,000 children will wake up on Christmas morning to nothing. Stead Lane and Metro Radio are asking that when shopping for your own child you buy an extra gift that we can give to a disadvantaged local child to make their Christmas morning special. We need new and unwrapped gifts suitable for children and young people aged 0-18 years. We will have a donations box in the main school entrance from Monday 27th November until they are collected on Monday 11th December so please hand any in during this time. Thank you very much for your support.
