Mrs Hutson, Head Teacher, St Augustine’s C of E Primary School, says 'Our school has been taking part in Christingle for over 40 years. From my experience of holding Christingle services with our church, it brings a wonderful sense of community and the realisation that with this coming together and celebration we can do something to help others.

'It brings a wonderful sense of community'

'My advice for anyone holding a Christingle service at school is to just go for it. There is no better feeling than having the whole school getting involved as well as the inspiration it gives to the children and the whole community that attend the service.'
