Kind-hearted girls raise funds to support 13 homeless peopleNovember 29th, 2019
Kind-hearted children at Monmouth School Girls’ Prep have raised money to help 13 homeless people this Christmas.
The Year 4 pupils held a series of activities, raising £377.51 towards the festive appeal run by national homelessness charity, Crisis.
Amalia, aged eight, said: “Sometimes we don’t realise just how lucky we are.
“We are very fortunate because we have a warm bed, somewhere to sleep, good food, good health-care and we get to go to school.
“But there are other people who are not as lucky as we are and it can be very tough for them.”
A Crisis package, which costs £28.87 each, can introduce a homeless person to the education, training and support needed to help end their rough-sleeping through the charity’s year-round services.
The Monmouth pupils organised a raffle for their friends and teachers and activities such as guessing the amount of sweets in a jar and the name of the monkey.
Nine-year-old, Charlotte, said: “When you think about homeless people living on the streets you feel sad because their beds have been soaked by the rain we’ve had recently.
“It’s very important that we try to do something to help homeless people.”
