St Faith’s Outreach Project
On Wednesday, pupils in Years 6-8 took part in a local outreach day. In the morning, they prepared scones with the catering team, which they shared with residents at the Arthur Rank Hospice when they visited them for their afternoon tea-run. The Arthur Rank Hospice is the chosen charity of Chaucer House and our pupils took time to look at the memory tree there, one of the leaves of which is dedicated to our former member of staff, Mrs Kate Allanson.
Pupils also went shopping with lists from the Salvation Army to purchase items for their food bank parcels. The shopping activity ended with a two minute ‘supermarket dash’ to find as many other items as they could for the food bank parcels. Having delivered the items to the Salvation Army Headquarters in Cambridge, the pupils helped to sort and make up food bank parcels. They then purchased some records from the Salvation Army shop and completed their afternoon by taking the records to Cambridgeshire Music in Histon, which is the county hub for music education and arts therapies. The records were put to good use, as the pupils helped to create two new wall displays.Back to all news
