It is no exaggeration to say that in appealing for essential items to aid those fleeing from war in Ukraine, donations flooded in from the St Peter’s community. Under the direction of Mrs Pearson, the generous contributions were sorted into various labelled boxes by pupil volunteers. Boxes and bags were then loaded onto the minibus and delivered to the charity Stella’s Voice in Havant, https://stellasvoice.org.uk/ , from where they will make their way to those refugees fleeing Ukraine.
As one would expect, St Peter’s children and their families were extremely generous. However, it is worth noting that as well as donations from our school community we had several donations from members of the wider community who have no direct links to our school but heard that we were collecting. This is a true testament to word of mouth and to the power of community solidarity that reaches out to those in need.
Thank you to everyone for the contributions to this cause, and please continue to pray for peace, reconciliation and justice in eastern Europe.
Mr R Cunningham
