The 13 December saw the staff and students at Bedlington Academy treating the local OAPs to a Christmas extravaganza! Students were tasked with asking grandparents, neighbours or other family members to attend a Christmas meal with all the trimmings. Staff collected the visitors by mini bus and also returned them home after the event but not before they were treated to a game of bingo and musical entertainment from the students. Donations from the parish council and the Co-op in Choppington meant that raffle prizes were also on offer. To round the afternoon off the visitors were given a hand made Christmas cake and card lovingly prepared by the students themselves. Many thanks to all the staff and students involved in making this a very special occasion for the local community.
