For the sixth consecutive year, the parents and pupils from Calday Grange Grammar School have donated hundreds of toys to the Tranmere Rovers ‘Super White Christmas Appeal.’
The donations will go towards helping provide Christmas gifts for children who may not otherwise be able to receive them this year.
Tranmere Rovers loanee Luke Robinson attended Calday as a youngster and he joined in to help collect the toys from the appeal.
“I’ve been quite fortunate myself but I’ve got friends and people who I’ve been around in football who are less fortunate, so I see things like this and how much it’s benefiting them and their families,” Luke said.
The kind donations from the parents and children at Calday Grange Grammar School as part of the Super White Christmas campaign is one aspect of Rovers’ association with the school, after they also formed the Club’s first official school Supporters’ Club.
“Links with any schools are really good to have because, like I said when I was younger, I saw [projects like] this going on when I was at Calday, and people walk past and turn their head because they see the Tranmere badge, everyone knows who they are,” Luke continued. “The links are always a good thing to have, whether that’s with Calday, or any school.”
Tranmere Rovers has also delivered 75 food hampers to Co-op Academy Portland, Riverside Primary and Christ Church CE Primary over the last week to help parents who are struggling to provide for their children get through the festive period.
