I’m sure like everyone in school you have been asking “How can we help the families of Ukraine?” The children and staff have been praying for peace . You may like to share this prayer with your children at home.
The children and staff have also decided that the focus of our Lenten giving this year will be to help the children and families of Ukraine in a practical way.
We would like to support The Archdiocese of Liverpool who have organised parish collection points for essential goods which will be transported to help Ukrainian families in need .
Each Friday during Lent we are asking the children to donate a new essential survival item from the list below and then school staff will deliver the goods to a local parish collection centre. Each class will have a donation box to collect the items received and please ensure all items are new and unopened.
- Foil survival blankets
- First aid kits
- Bandages of different widths
- Nappy rash creams or baby bath lotions
- Powdered baby milk and Baby bottles
- Shampoos, soap
- Toothbrushes, toothpaste
- Children’s socks, underwear, vests , gloves
- Sleeping bags
- Metal cups
- Thermal clothing
- Hair brushes
The Archdiocese has also set up a text service for those families that would also like to make a cash donation to help Ukraine . Click on this link below for more information
I would like to thankyou in advance of your support
