Donated Coats Will Help Vulnerable People Keep Warm in Winter
Charitable pupils have collected 200 winter coats to keep vulnerable people in their community warm this winter.
As part of their Festive Winter Giving Programme, during which pupils demonstrate their contributions to the wider community through charitable actions, the youngsters collected the clothing for charity Narthex Sparkhill. The charity, which aims to improve the quality of life of Sparkhill residents, runs a clothes bank to provide emergency clothing to people in need. As temperatures have plummeted this winter, the charity has seen an increase in the number of people requiring warm clothing suited to the season.
Pupils visited Narthex Sparkhill to deliver the coats and see for themselves the good work that the charity undertakes in their own community.
Carol Hancock, Manager at Narthex Sparkhill, said:
“The coats have been gratefully received and they will make a real difference to people in the local area.”
Year 3 pupil Nuha Maflahi said:
“It warmed my heart thinking I could help make a difference during this festive period and so I hope our coats help to keep people in Sparkhill warm this winter.”
Principal Rifat Batool said:
“We like to encourage our pupils to think of others. I am overwhelmed and so proud of the response of our school community. It has been very heartening to see our pupils coming together to organise the collection of donations. Children and their parents have been so generous in donating hundreds of coats to keep Sparkhill people warm this winter. I’d like to thank them all for their generosity.”
