By Spreading the Warmth Kolbe House will be hoping to make a huge impact on a large number of older people who suffer during the colder months of the Year. Beginning on the 3rd February and building up to Bobble day on the 7th, Kolbe students will be involved in a number of different activities such as: buying and wearing their bobbles with pride; collecting and distributing donated coats; knitting messages of support; taking part in an Age UK assembly; joining together for Kolbe House Mass and designing posters and banners to show their support for this worthwhile cause. All in all they will be spreading the warmth not only around our school community but in the local area too.
So if you want to get involved and support our House’s effort it’s really easy, you can:
ask your child to buy you a bobble from school;
print off one of our woolly hats or gloves and cover it with your coins and send it back in with your child;
Remember just a little donation can really help…
- £5 pays for a warming visit from a befriender to an isolated older person
- £12 pays for a home visit to check energy efficiency and insulation
- £20 pays for a warming emergency food pack
- £100 provides ten older people with a vital winter pack of clothing, food, information and thermometers to keep them warm and well.
