Great Howarth School Kindness

Back in December 2020 I recieved an email from Tracey Porter (deputy head teacher) at great howarth school asking if we would like a very kind donation of gifts for some of our service users,? Tracey was unsure as to what to provide so I very kindly accepted the offer and suggested shoe box style gifts offered a great way for the children to personalise the gifts and tailor them to either men or women.

Unfortunately the covid-19 pandemic got in the way of us receiving the boxes in time for Christmas, however Tracey and the children kindly kept her promise and I collected 10 boxes on the 9th February 2021. The boxes were all individually decorated and personalised for our male and female service users.

This donation means an awful lot to the Sanctuary Trust especially as we take into consideration that Great Howarth School is a DfE registered, independent special school for pupils aged 7 to 18 years, who may have social, emotional and mental health difficulties, as well as a range of other needs, including ADHD or ASD.

The boxes were created with love, care and attention and will really cheer up someones day.

Thank you!

Verse of the Day

Sanctuary Trust works with homelessness and homeless related poverty and emergency homeless issues. God's Sanctuary was the vision of Sheila Halsall after seeing the level of homelessness Rochdale and later the homelessness Conwy and the substance misuse such as Drugs and Alcohol. By Providing emergency shelter for the homeless in supported housing services funded mainly through Supporting People we assist other providers such as Shelter homelessness, Petrus and Stepping Stones who are also supporting people through women's and men's hostels and floating support. We also have STEP Emergency overnight provision. With our work in Wales we partner with Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) as they provide financial help for homeless through emergency shelter and their Supporting People funds. There are different kinds of accommodation available but what is needed is good quality supported accommodation with a strong business and development plan. We have also provided consultancy service to help others move closer to an answer to homelessness. Our social enterprise company, Sanctuary Trust Enterprises runs Noah's Ark Play Centre, The Storehouse Charity Shop.
