Daily Update - Wednesday 13th November

Daily Update

Wednesday 13th November 2019


In January a group from the church slept in tents in the churchyard to raise money to run shelters in the area to give homeless people a hot meal and bed for a night. The aim was also to raise awareness of the homeless crisis in the local community. The challenge is organised by the Church Urban Fund. We were appalled at the thought of people having to sleep rough every night, without the luxury we had of a hot meal and knowing that we could return to our comfortable beds the night after.

We are organising another sleepout on December 6th.
I would be really grateful to anyone who feels they could make a small donation to help this vital work.

My link to the fundraising page is:
Or the School Office will accept a donation in a labelled envelope.

Thank you.
