Over half-term the Education Department packaged up 88 lunches and craft activities for families at a local school. With funding from the Welcome Network we will be doing this again at the Christmas, February half-term and Easter holidays.
This is a really important outreach from the Education Department to some of our local families.
We had two lovely responses from the school.
“Wednesday morning really was very lovely Jen. It was heartwarming to see the smiles on the faces of the people I delivered to.”
“I just wanted to say a massive THANKS to you and your Team for arranging and providing the packages for our families last week. They were all so grateful and appreciative of what they received. It means a lot, support like this helps to improve outcomes for our families in need.”
At Christmas I would very much like to give the families we are supporting a small hamper for Christmas as an extra.
We do not have the funds for this and I wondered if there were some members of the Cathedral community who would like to make a donation towards this. We are supporting twelve families ranging from two members to seven members.
