This year during Advent we are supporting a local charity in our community called “Number 11”
Please read below and find out about Number 11
“We know that there are many issues facing our community and an array of services trying to address a wide variety of problems, however due to over-pressured and underfunded services, individuals are often just left with a plaster over the problem… that’s not what we’re about.
At Number 11, we’re aiming to eradicate the root cause of these issues, helping clients to reach a place of stability and self-sustainability – in addition to providing immediate crisis support, where it’s needed. Not putting a plaster over the problem, but instead walking with clients every step of the way, investing in them, supporting their development – always working towards sustainable change.”

We are asking families this year to donate dried and tinned food as well as any PPE equipment such as soap, hand sanitizers and masks. These will then be given out to vulnerable families in our local community.
We are always blown away by your generosity here at St. Peter’s and ask you support us this year especially during these troubled and uncertain times for many in our community.
The children have already enjoyed a virtual meeting online with Dave Nixon who works for the charity so the children understand where their donations are going.
You have until the 11th December to bring in your donations.
Thank you for your support
