A School of Sleepout Stars

St Simon Stock School, Maidstone, have had another great year of fundraising for the Centre, raising over £1800 through a sponsored Big Sleepout.

St Simon Stock July 2014 GroupThe grand total, which includes Gift Aid, has been building since the sixth formers slept out under the stars in March this year. Thanks to former head girl, Abigail Motley, St Simon Stock students now do a sponsored Big Sleepout every year to raise money for the Cardinal Hume Centre. This is their third consecutive year of holding an event.

Last week, a group of them came to visit the Centre to present a cheque. They also assisted in our ESOL classes and sang songs with the nursery children in the family centre.

Thank you St Simon Stock, for continuing to support the Centre and inspiring other schools to follow your example.

The money raised through our wonderful community of fundraisers is pivotal for the Centre’s success. If you would like to hold your own event on our behalf please contact StephenCurrid@cardinalhumecentre.org.uk.
