Over the past four weeks, pupils and staff at St Edward’s RC Primary School in Oldham have been collecting items in a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’ activity. For example, on day one, families were encouraged to donate soap or shampoo; on another day, to bring in tinned stews. All of the items were then collected yesterday by Caritas Salford and will be distributed at our services at Red Door in Bury and the Lalley Centre and Cornerstone in Manchester. A huge thank you from all of us!
Thank you to every school and parish that has participated in our #LOVED campaign this Advent in whatever way you chose to do so, and for putting your love into action. We are so grateful.
