Last week, Lily, Jessica and Ella visited Joe’s Place in Gateshead to deliver food items which the school had collected following Year 5’s Harvest Assembly.
Joe’s Place opens every Wednesday to provide a hot meal, drinks and companionship to people in need in the community. This includes the homeless, refugees and asylum seekers.
“We have recently been to Joe’s Place and witnessed what it is like to have nothing and that is why we think it’s good to help them make Christmas goody bags to distribute at their Christmas Party. This includes toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, flannels, shampoo, shower gel, deodorant,tissues and woolen gloves. Please help Joe’s Place bring joy to people at Christmas time by bringing in an item for the goody bags”
