Community School


Thanksgiving collection.

Dear Parents and Friends,

Homelessness has been a prominent feature in the news of late, and has inspired many of our pupils to ask members of the School council to focus on supporting less fortunate people within our community. 

As a result, and as part of our Thanksgiving assembly, we will be donating a variety of toiletries to help the Huggard centre in Cardiff, with their work in supporting homeless people in our city.

Following a conversation with the centre, please be aware that they are in desperate need of toiletries at the centre. Please find the details below

: toothbrushes, razors, toothpaste, shampoo, shower gel, and deodorant especially.

We kindly ask that you donate an item by Friday the 4th of November. Should you prefer, a financial donation would also be warmly accepted.

For more information about the centre and its work, please visit the website below.

Thank you for your support
