WARDY’S Christmas Tree is a proud Newhaven College giving tradition that has been running for 22 years.

It began when teacher John Ward (now retired) called upon Newhaven College families to think of others at Christmas by donating a gift to families in need.

Every year the college is overwhelmed by the generosity of families and community members who place a gift under Wardy’s tree.

“This year has been extremely tough for our community, and we hope to bring joy to those in need this Christmas,” the college said.

Parents, students, and friends of Newhaven are invited to place new, unwrapped gifts for people of all ages under the tree in the main reception up until December 5.

“The gifts will be distributed to local families in need to spread some Christmas spirit and show that we care.”

Wardy would like to thank San Remo IGA and Cowes Aldi for supporting this year’s appeal.
