Let your love make the
difference this spring!

Bright beautiful colours are in bloom all around us – it’s springtime – and we’re in the mood for celebrating here at St Mary’s!

After weeks of cold and dreary days indoors our boys and girls are ready for outdoor fun in the sun . . . if only their clothes suited the season!

One look at their tracksuits and long-sleeved shirts and you’ll know it won’t do!

If you’re a friend . . . will you make an online donation right away and help us kit our boys and girls with some colourful ‘cool clothes’ for summer?

Your support will mean we can get them shorts and t-shirts, cool pyjamas and summer dresses to keep cool and colourful. And what’s more you’ll show them that they’re cared for and loved.

If you’re a parent you’ll know that little children can’t run and play in warm clothing! They need the freedom of comfortable clothes.

Please say you’ll help give them the simple luxury of casual clothing with your gift today.

And if enough of our friends join together we’ll be also able to cover the cost of extra lessons for our children before the end of year exams.

So please give as generously as you can and help our children be the best they can be.
Thank you so much for all you do to help our precious boys and girls shine.

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