To God Through Mary .....Do Dhia Trí Mhuire
As a school we decided to take part in this campaign and are registered as an official Mission Christmas Drop-off Point.
For most of us, Christmas is full of joy, food and gifts. But for the almost 1 in 4 children in Northern Ireland who live in poverty, Christmas is just a dream.
Cash for Kids Mission Christmas is about keeping the Christmas dream alive for local children in Northern Ireland, who through no fault of their own, would otherwise wake up to nothing this Christmas.
In 2016 13,361 local children were supported thanks to mission Christmas and already this year there are requests for over 7,000 children to get help. Unfortunately campaign organisers are expecting the number to rise from last year.
All gifts donated will be forwarded to Mission Christmas Headquarters and some of the staff from our school have volunteered to give their time at Headquarters to help with the sorting and distributing of gifts. If you think this is something you would like to get involved with too, please speak with Ms Lambe to arrange this.
Below are photos and a short video of all the amazing gifts you have donated to this really worthwhile appeal.
St. Mary's Primary School are so grateful for all your generosity and thoughtfulness. Many families will benefit from your kindness. Thank you so much and we wish you all 'A Very Happy and Peaceful Christmas.'
