Toys turn a tidy profit for homeless

Grace, Nahoa and Stella get into the spirit of the day. 159208

A GROUP of hard-working Year 1 Ocean Grove Primary School students formulated a project about recycling.
They all worked together to hold a ‘Toy Op Shop’ late in term three to raise money for charity.
The students created posters, advertised the event in the school newsletter and around the school, made announcements over the school PA system and at assembly.
They raised a total of $211 and donated the money to The Portable Bed Project, which helps homeless people in the region.
Steve Neville from the Portable Bed Project came to the school to talk about his charity and to accept the donation.
The remaining toys will be taken to the local op shop in Ocean Grove.
