Year 6 Support the Homeless

Yesterday afternoon, Year 6 and the Mini Vinnies, gave up some of their time to produce Christmas cards for the homeless. What a happy occasion it was! They sang joyfully as they worked, and knowing that this may be the only card somebody receives with the message of Christmas, they put their hearts into it and took great care to produce something special. Altogether, 36 Christmas cards were made. Well done everyone, and a big thank you!

These cards will be given by some of the adult SVP members of St Edmund’s parish to the homeless people who attend a Christmas lunch organised for them in Oxford later this month, together with a small gift for each person. The SVP do not organise this lunch, but do attend (as they have been for 3 or 4 years) to help with preparing, welcoming, serving, clearing up – and of course, giving out gifts and the children’s Christmas cards.

The year 6 pupils have also prepared a poster to advertise the parish collection for the homeless which was sent out to parents yesterday.

Please bring into school or put in the box at the back of St Edmund’s church any:

  • shampoo
  • soap
  • new socks and
  • toothpaste.
