Advent Fundraising

Thank you so much for all your wonderful generosity this Advent.

The school disco and raffle raised an amazing £400. We have sent £200 to Elizabeth House in Gateshead which supports venerable mothers and babies and also £200 to Mission together – our Catholic charity which focuses on children in the developing world.

 

We also collected and enormous amount of food! – so much that we have split it between Gateshead food bank, The Food Co op which is run out of Corpus Christi church and Joe’s Place which supports homeless people in our local area. This will really help needy families over the Christmas period.

Finally, the children have brought in some wonderful gifts for other children to receive through the Changing Lives charity based on Team Valley

 

Have a wonderful Christmas with your families and once again ‘thank you’ for your generosity
