To all the students, teachers and families that bought some delicious goods at the Christmas Fair, we managed to raise just over 1000PLN.
This is a great outcome, as we can now buy some metal spoons (to reduce the waste), a very large cooking pot and some containers for transporting the soup from school. This money will also help to pay for the food supplied for at least 5 upcoming soup making sessions.
Our last soup kitchen session was held on Saturday 15th December and it was a big one and rather cold! The students served over 75 people!
The Warsaw Volunteer Mission also worked with our Primary School and Mr Parkinson, to organise some 100 Christmas hampers that were handed out to those in need as they left the compound.
A massive thank you to all the students that signed up to get involved and committed to supporting this community action. It is such a humbling and rewarding experience, plus a chance to develop some basic life skills along the way (like peeling vegetables and making some quality soup!).
The program will look to regroup again in late January, when the WVM come back from a the Christmas break. We will be looking to open the action up to existing and new helpers, with a new registration starting at the end of January (Watch this space and keep an eye out on CHQ and LEAP programmes).
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a happy new year and thank you for your support!
