Dear parents and carers,
At this time of the year, we would usually be getting excited about gathering together in the hall to celebrate our harvest festivals. This year we have teamed up with Helen Harrison, the former mayor of Thornbury, who led our harvest assembly virtually.
We enjoyed hearing about all the work she does in Kenya supporting families in many ways, including ensuring people always have enough to eat.
Instead of bringing in a food donation, this year we are raising money for the ‘Desks for Dinners’ campaign for Spurgeons Academy, a school in the Kibera Slum in Nairobi, Kenya. The school desperately needs more desks in order to reopen under Covid-19 guidelines and continue providing hot meals and education to its 420 pupils. Helen has made a short video for us about the fundraising campaign. You can watch it here: https://vimeo.com/462993130.
Can you help us fund a desk? To make a donation, please use this link: https://www.totalgiving.co.uk/mypage/desksfordinners
Thank you so much for your support.
Mrs S Tulley
