8 year old Zac inspires giving!14/02/19
When 8 year old Zac Goldsmith, a pupil at Sinai Jewish Primary School, attended a GIFT food packing session together with his family, he was extremely moved by the experience. Shocked that there are so many in our community struggling to purchase food to feed their family; he was determined to help!
Zac wrote a letter to his headteacher, Mrs Lipshaw, requesting to put the motto of the school - ‘a big school with a big heart’ to the test. He explained in his letter,
‘I thought about how big Sinai school is and how all the families could make a difference ... please can you allow me to write to the parents asking to bring in food..’
Zac succeeded in arranging a very successful food collection.
His mother, Viviane told us ‘We are so very proud of Zac. He was genuinely moved when he came to pack food at GIFT and even though he hates writing, he was determined to do whatever it took to help those in need.’
Since Zac Goldsmith’s food collection, other children have been inspired by his altruistic actions. 10 year old Zac Stross from Nancy Rubin Primary School, after hearing about his namesake’s inspirational actions, has also written to his school requesting that pupils bring in food items.
"There is no ‘I’ in Team, but we are glad there is ‘U’ in our volunteers!"
