Food parcel donations for those less fortunate...
Students generously donated food goods during the month of December. Those goods were gathered into parcels and donated to those less fortunate in the Parishes of St Ambrose, St Catherine's, St Cuthbert's and St Bernard's.
160 parcels of food were collected in total. Forms groups tried to collect 30 different items to help make up the parcels, such as tins of fruit, beans, soup, potatoes, vegetables etc, pasta, rice, more luxury items such as biscuits and chocolates, oil, baby food, toiletry items etc.
Students received the following thank you for their donations made to Manchester Projects of DePaul UK:
"I’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who contributed from everyone here at the projects, it is a fantastic gesture. We work with 16-21 year old young people who can no longer live with their families for a number of reasons. Many who come to us have no family support and very little income and as such are reliant on support from different sources. Your kind donations will ensure that those who come to us with nothing will have access to food over the Christmas period, so on their behalf thank you very very much."
