Thank you letter from Pensioner for Christmas Present

Before Christmas the school council organised Christmas presents to be sent to elderly people as part of AgeNI’s “No-one should have no-one” campaign.  One of the elderly people who received a Christmas present from our pupils this year has written a lovely thank you note.

Letter of thanks from Mr Derick Murray

In it he says:

Dear Children,

I trust that you all had a very happy Christmas and that you received many lovely presents.  I received some myself but do you know, the one that please me most of all was the one that I received from yourselves.  I was greatly touched and very grateful to think that you all gave money to buy a present for someone you didn’t even know.  That is the true spirit of Christmas.

Thank you once again and may the Lord bless you all.

Derrick Murray

We are so proud of all of you, thanks for all the effort.
