To celebrate Harvest this year, we are supporting the Hope Centre in Northampton. Last week we welcomed Tanya Haji-Miller from the centre to talk to us about her work. The Hope Centre offers support every day for 100 local people who are homeless.
We would like to help, by donating as many items to them as we can. In particular, the Hope Centre are looking for foodstuffs for breakfast and dinner, and supplies for the showering and changing facilities that they offer to their clients. They are in need of donations of shower gel and shampoo, as well as underwear, and are also collecting garden tools to support a garden tool refurbishment programme that they are running.
Thank you if you have made a donation already, we are very grateful for your support. If you haven't, but still wish to donate an item we can accept your donation until morning registration on Friday 29th September.
Below is a more detailed list of items the Hope Centre would be delighted to receive. We will be taking any items we have collected to the Hope Centre on Friday 29th September 2017. Should you wish to contribute, your child can bring an item in to school and hand it to their class teacher.
Thank you in advance for your support.
