Help keep our children
warm here . . .

With this freezing cold that's hit us the need for warm pyjamas, thick socks, cosy blankets, woolly jerseys, jackets, scarves and beanies have become a priority for our young children.

If you’re a friend of St Mary’s, will you help with
your online donation here?

As you can imagine, it’s only a matter of time before coughs and runny noses strike, so our medicine cupboard needs stocking up too. Please make your contribution here and help our boys and girls beat the winter blues.

Your support will show our children that they’re cared for and loved . . . and what’s more you’ll be warming their hearts this winter. So please make your contribution here right away.

We’re really hoping you’ll help . . . and if enough of our friends respond then we’ll stock up on healthy fruit and vegetables to keep our youngsters healthy and happy – no matter how cold it gets!

Please make your donation here – and share some warmth this winter.

Thank you and God bless.

Gifts in kind and willing volunteers are also hugely appreciated. Please click here for more information, or telephone the home on
011 435-3820.
