Mary's Meals Backpack Project

Backpack Project

 This year we are again supporting Mary's Meals Backpack Project, which sends schoolbags, polo shirts, skirts, shorts and stationery to Malawi to help children with their education.  We would like you to fill a bag with: notepads, pencils, pens,crayons, eraser, sharpener, ruler, pencil case, towel, shorts or skirt, t-shirt or dress, flip-flops or sandals, small ball (e.g. tennis ball), soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, spoon.Handy hints: 

  • Don’t buy new, recycle where you can!
  • Clothing for children between four and 12 years is suitable. 
  • Please label filled bags for boy/girl and age e.g. girl, 8. 
  • Don’t be tempted to put in toys or sweets. This can cause problems during delivery. 

Please send the backpack in during w/c 12th November.  Thank you.

South Sefton Foodbank

 

We are a collection point for South Sefton Foodbank. On Friday 12th October the children will be celebrating Harvest Festival with a harvest liturgy led by our GoGivers group.  As part of this celebration we ask that the children bring an item for the Foodbank. They are always in need of tinned and dried foods; longlife milk and juice; and treat foods such as biscuits, chocolate and jam. They also need toiletries; kitchen and bathroom cleaning products; nappies and formula milk for babies of all ages are also much appreciated.

Please send items in to school. They are currently short of tinned vegetables, noodles and coffee. Find out more at https://southsefton.foodbank.org.uk Many thanks for your continued support.
