Worth students have been praised for giving up their own time last weekend to collect food donations for Crawley Open House and raise awareness of what the charity does.
Girls in St Mary’s Sixth, together with a boy from St Bede’s House, were at Sainsbury’s in Crawley on Sunday to hand out literature about the work Crawley Open House does helping the homeless and disadvantaged in the area, as well as the food types and toiletries most needed.
They also set up a stall in the entrance of Sainsbury’s to collect donations, with four trolleys full of shopping collected which will enable Crawley Open House to send out a week’s worth of food parcels.
Ian Wilkins, Head of Fundraising and Relationships at Crawley Open House, said: “What can I say? Sunday was a triumph. Your pupils were a joy and did such a great job.”
Crawley Open House is one of Worth School’s chosen charities, along with Mary’s Meals.
Girls in St Mary’s Sixth would welcome further donations to the School, with collection points in reception, the Pitstop and St Mary’s House.
