Ripples of Kindness

This week, the student leaders launched our collection of items for Rosies, Friends on the Street. Rosies volunteers offer simple hospitality to people who are often lonely and benefit significantly from just having someone engage them in a friendly conversation over a hot drink. The students will be collecting donations of teabags, coffee, hot chocolate, cup-a-soup, two-minute noodles, sugar and biscuits. Deacon Andrew, who works with Rosies volunteers, spoke to the student leaders on Monday to provide more insights into the difference that we all make by supporting the work done by this organisation.

Andrew also highlighted the need to provide fresh fruit to clients to supplement their diet. We will therefore be holding a “Wear Your Colours Day” next Wednesday, 21st June, where students can wear their team colours in exchange for a gold coin donation. Proceeds will be given to Deacon Andrew for the purchase of fruit. Donations can also be made via Qkr!
