All Boxed-up for Charity!
Over 100 Warwick School boys slept in cardboard boxes to raise money for charity.
The event was planned to raise funds for a good cause and allowed the Year 7 boys to have fun together whilst appreciating a little of what it means to be homeless.
The boys were challenged with building their own cardboard shelter, along with the use of some other materials to make them as waterproof as possible, just in case!
A variety of physically and mentally challenging activities took place including Football, Cricket, a quiz, and a “Capture the Flag” style wide-game.
A late night chapel service was held reflecting on the work of Helping Hands Community Project in Leamington Spa which Warwick School is once again supporting. Representatives from the project joined in the service bringing a thought-provoking message. This helpfully followed an assembly given by Helping Hands Community Project earlier in the term.
Soup was served by the Head Master, Dr Deneal Smith, at 11.30pm before the boys settled into their boxes to face the challenge of a night Sleeping Out!
Despite a few ominous looking black clouds, the rain held off for a dry night under the stars, before an early (4am!) rise with the sun.
We are hoping to have been able to raise over £3,000 for Helping Hands.
