Gift Appeal 2019

Gift Appeal 2019

St. Mary’s students once again discovered that Christmas can be ‘the season of giving, without a thought of getting’. Every form group in the academy was issued with two gift tags. Their task was to raise money and buy a Christmas gift for a child and an elderly person, family in need, elderly hospital patient or homeless person. Three weeks of fundraising followed including sponsored events, an ‘own clothes’ day, crisp sales, chocolate tombola, candy cane sale, donut stall, film club, learning house quiz, dodgeball etc. The fundraising culminated in a presentation of gifts for 82 children, 28 homeless people, 12 families in need and 10 elderly people. The school chapel was bursting with dolls, bears, footballs, trains, vouchers, make up, baby clothes, games, racing sets, 18 sleeping bags, hats and gloves and lots of food hampers. In total the students raised a whopping £3,598.82.

The gifts will be distributed by Caritas Care, Blackpool Coastal Housing, Christ the King SVP society and Streetlife.

The organisations who received the gifts were overwhelmed and spoke of how some of the most vulnerable children and adults in our community will now experience the joy of Christmas. Leah, who works with residents in a homeless hostel in Blackpool spoke of how a child had asked her this week “does Santa come to the hostel?” and her reply “he does now!”

Our Caring Community should be very proud of their efforts. As St. Francis said, “for it is in giving that we receive.”
