Last Wednesday, some Mini Vinnies visited Joe’s Place in Gateshead to donate bags of food items which Year 5 had collected for their Harvest Assembly.
Joe’s Place opens on a Wednesday in St Joseph’s church hall to offer a hot meal, snacks and company to homeless people in the North East. The children learned about the work of Joe’s Place and found out which foods would be the most useful to collect. In addition, Joe’s place will be having a Christmas Party for the homeless on the 19th December and will be giving each person attending a gift of toiletries.
If you can help, please send in a toiletry item such as soap, toothbrush/paste, shower gel or deodorant to the school office.
The Mini Vinnies will ensure they are delivered to Joe’s Place in time for the party.
Our Mini Vinnies have been encouraging everyone to fill a shoebox for families living in poverty in Eastern Europe.
They have collected hats, toys and other items and have been selling them for 20p on the yard after school, to help with the cost of filling a shoebox.
If you can help, please bring your wrapped, packed and sealed shoebox into school with two £1 coins attached by Monday 29th October, the first week back after half term.
