The Manna Society - our Advent Charity
At Advent, St Mary’s school community, as part our commitment to being of service to those in need, has always collected for the poor and hungry. This year we have been supporting The Manna Society, a charity which helps the homeless in London.
We asked students and staff to bring in items before the end of term, so that we had time to deliver them before Christmas Thank you to Mr Leyman and Ms Wheeler who took the boxes of our donations to their London Bridge base on Tuesday, 21st December.
Thank you to all those who donated items to The Manna Society this Advent. We recognise that many of our own families are experiencing hardship, so this effort in support of those in need is a truly magnificent effort.
