ECHO Christmas


St Martinís takes its service to the community very seriously and part of that is the commitment to fundraising for a wide range of charities.  Everyone Can Help Others.

We are very much looking forward to hosting our second Christmas Senior Citizens Lunch on 7 December, followed by the matinee of our Christmas Praise gospel concert at Holy Trinity church to which our Senior Citizens are warmly invited.

CLIC Sargent

This morning, 10 February, we handed over a large cheque for the sum of £310 to Verity Gallagher, fundraising manager for CLIC Sargent.  In the Winter of 2016 two fellow students and I decided we wanted to raise money for this charity by setting up a festive market stall.  It took us a week to plan this and we came up with a business plan which we showed to Mrs Stanislaus and also to Jackie, a worker at Holy Trinity church.  They accepted our proposal and loaned us £50. This enabled us to buy and make Christmas inspired items for the stall.  We ran our stall for three days: at the Winter Gospel Concert and on the last two days of term.  We sold homemade cards and gift tags, pompoms, Christmas badges, baked good and chocolate sleighs.  At the end we were really happy that we had raised £310, thanks to the generosity of the students and staff.
