We had referrals for new school uniform for 24 children. Reasons for referrals were poverty, awaiting universal credits and families who had escaped domestic violence and left everything behind. We hope all the children feel smart in their uniforms, and have a good school year. Thank you to Nicola Cadby Mooney from Rustic & Retro Cakery who has raised £101.00 from raffles towards our uniform purchase. We really appreciate your kind gesture xx
A lovely message received yesterday – “Thank you for everything you have done.
Me and my children would have been in deep trouble.
I wish I could show or do something to show you how grateful we are.
I didn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel you pulled me through the darkness.
Thank you again with all my heart”
