Charity and Missionary Discipleship
At St Mary's, we pride ourselves on supporting the school and the wider community where possible. We call this 'missionary discipleship'. This means we encourage children to take responsibility for their local area and community. We endeavour to raise money for these vital organisations so that people all over the world will benefit indirectly from our raised funds.
Some of the charities and organisations that we work with are listed below:
September 2020 Jeans for Genes
More recently we celebrated #jeansforgenes day which St Mary's staff and pupils took part in at the end of September, we received a certificate to thank us for participating and raising over £127 for Genetic Disorders UK. We would like to thank all the pupils, teachers and parents who supported us.
October 2020 'SockTober'
We are hoping you will help to support homeless and vulnerable people in North East Lincolnshire by taking part in SOCKTOBER! Never have we needed or been more grateful for our homes than during the last six months, imagine being homeless during this pandemic.
We would love for your school to put a shout out for new socks so that we can supply our service users with nice clean footwear.
The local support and belief in Harbour Place is helping us to make inroads into the lives of many people. Unfortunately new people are still being referred to us but, together we can continue to move people into accommodation. We continue to support around 40 individuals who are in short term accommodation and we are also providing daily support to those who are street homeless. We are about to implement some alterations to our night shelter accommodation at the Hope Centre in the hope that Government will allow Night shelters to open for the winter.
From everyone at Harbour Place, thank you so much for your support .
