Lady Eleanor Holles School is embracing the spirit of giving with their '12 Days of Christmas Giving'. For the next 12 days, the school is showcasing the generous ways its pupils have given their time and support to help others, communicated through emails sent from their ToucanTech website. Multi-talented teachers are also contributing festive presents, with one chemistry teacher offering one of his best cocktail recipes as a gift and thus encouraging donations to the Bursary Fund.
