Can you help?

We are looking for donations of resources to help families with Primary School age children who are at home during this time. Could you donate any new, or used in good condition, from this list?

  • Books - story, puzzle, colouring

  • Pencils, crayons, paints

  • Jigsaws, games

  • Crafting supplies

If you can and it is safe for you to do so, please drop off at the porch area of St. Joseph's school, Mill Lane, Gilesgate on Monday or Friday between 10am and 2pm, commencing Monday, 4th May. There are also collecting boxes for toiletries and non-perishable groceries if you could spare any of these. Thank you!
