Having spent a frantic few weeks fundraising, the staff and pupils at Corpus Christi High School presented us with 20 Rucksacks all full of underwear, socks, sleeping bags, chocolate, t-shirts, shower gel and a New Testament. They also had a few items spare! We were blown away by their efforts and generosity especially in such a short space of time. The people who attend our Wednesday Drop-In were delighted to receive such a useful gift for Christmas and were so touched by the love and care that was demonstrated to them. If you would like to be involved in a similar project in the future then please get in touch.
Corpus Christi High School are generously helping us to provide a rucksack full of useful things and a message of love to each person who uses our Wednesday Drop-In over the Christmas period.
We went into School on Tuesday 28th and Thursday 30th to address two assemblies about the appeal. We took some time to explain some of the situations that can lead to people sleeping on the streets and to suggest some ways that they can help. This Advent each of the form groups will raise money and the School SVP group will then use that money to buy and fill as many rucksacks as possible.
We can’t wait to see the result!
