This week, Monday 3 to Friday 7 February, students have been raising money for the charity, Whitechapel Mission.
Whitechapel Mission have been helping homeless Londoners since 1876, meeting the specific needs of each man and woman who walks through their doors. Initially, they help the homeless by meeting immediate needs: food, shelter, clothing, and medical care. In their recovery programs, they address deeper needs for life skills, job skills training and, if needed, addiction recovery. Progress is measured against four criteria, which indicate to them that a life has been transformed from homelessness to hope: connection to family, commitment to sobriety, a job and a place to live, and a plan for the future. Today, The Whitechapel Mission is a results-oriented organisation that is recognised as one of London's most effective charities.
Abbey, Bourne and Tudor Houses have been holding their Charity Week this week in aid of Whitechapel Mission. Events included cake sales and collecting clothing, blankets and other useful items.
Glyn School is committed to raising students’ awareness of the needs of others less fortunate than themselves, and we are always delighted with their response to charity events. Thank you to everyone who supported Charity Week this week, in any capacity; your generosity will benefit people in great need. Thank you.
Mr M Daniels, Head of Abbey House
