On Sunday 14th Janaury, four Year 8 pupils (Amy, Bethany, Alexander and Tomas) went to Bloomsbury Baptist Church with Mr and Mrs Crisell. The purpose of the visit was to see how the money we raised at harvest festival is used by the church. Primarily, our donation contributes to a pot of funds created as a result of numerous charitable donations made throughout the year. One of the things the church offers is a weekly Sunday lunch for a number of homeless people, those in sheltered accommodation and some who have mental health issues or who are simply alone. Our children were fantastic, serving a three course lunch to over 60 guests and then clearing up, as well as taking the time to talk to many of those there. Amy, Bethany, Alexander and Tomas were a credit to Barrow Hills. It is so important, when we can, to give our children first hand experience in seeing the difference we can make when we are trying to help other people. This visit did exactly that. In Monday’s assembly, all four children gave a very clear account of how our community at Barrow Hills made a difference.
