Fundraising record-breakers

A big thank you to our friends at St Thomas More Language College, who chose us as their Advent Charity once again  last year.

Thomas MoreThis time, their fundraising reached new levels and a group of students came to visit us last week with a cheque and donation for £3,088.18. We are delighted!

To raise money, St Thomas More students made a beautiful calendar of photos that they sold at their Advent fair. Other stalls at the fair included cakes, Portuguese custard tarts and ceramic Christmas tree decorations made by the art department. There was soulful singing and lots of atmosphere. The fair was held in the school hall, where we found a plaque that read “This building was opened by Cardinal Basil Hume on 2nd July 1996”. How apt!

Thank you, St Thomas More, for all your support, and for your fantastic fundraising flair!


There are lots of exciting fundraising activities your school could do for the Centre, from a Big SleepOut to a cake sale. For more ideas, contact our Community Fundraiser, Stephen Currid.
