Supporting wellbeing                                                       Wellbeing

We are living in extraordinary, unprecedented times and it is natural for us all, especially children, to feel anxious and worried. This is a normal reaction, and some stress is to be expected. Although we may be facing living in isolation, we should never feel isolated when we know that we are part of community and that we are loved by God. We know that you will support your children through what is undoubtedly a challenging and unsettling time.

The passage

Help St Ignatius help the homeless

 

 

One of the charities the school supports is The Passage which is a Roman Catholic homeless charity based near to Westminster Cathedral. During the Covid 19 crisis The Passage has been tasked with providing meals every day for homeless people currently housed in emergency accommodation in local budget hotels. To help fund this work for the next 10 weeks The Passage need to raise £300,000 from charitable giving. We are asking if you would consider helping to support their work by donating the £10 cost of a day’s meal package for a homeless person. If you are in a position to do so you can do this very easily by clicking on the link below:

Thank you for considering this request. We know that it would really help the work of this great charity if you could afford to donate.
