Charity Work

Charities we support…

South Liverpool Foodbank Logo

Rudston School Council regularly collect donations for South Liverpool Foodbanks. Collections this year are being made in the first week of every half term.

The foodbank works on the belief that nobody in our community should have to face going hungry. They provide three days’ nutritionally balanced emergency food and support to local people who are in crisis. They are part of a nationwide network of foodbanks, supported by The Trussell Trust, working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK.

The School council work hard to collect and sort out the food. They are aware that the foodbank is run on a voluntary basis and that by spending some time sorting food it helps the volunteers enormously.

SPONSOR A CHILD – PLAN UK

LALIT

For some time now Rudston has sponsored a young Indian boy called Lalit. Lalit lives in a poor area called Madanpur Khadar near New Delhi and, as you can imagine, his life experiences are very different from those of the Rudston children. We feel that it is good to encourage the children to think about other people in different circumstances than themselves. The children are asked to bring 10p once a month to send to Plan, the company who organise the sponsorship.

The money that is raised goes toward Lalit’s education and has also bought books for his school so that other children can benefit too. It is used to contribute toward projects in the village that he lives in, such as providing clean water and raising awareness of health issues. In this way the villagers are pleased that Lalit is sponsored as it helps them too.

At the end of the summer term, 6 letters were sent from children who were then in Year 3, to Lalit in India. and we have now received a reply (this takes some months). In their letters, the Year 3 children told Lalit about themselves – about brothers and sisters and hobbies. In Lalit’s mum’s letter, she tells of two very special Hindu festivals that Lalit and his family will be celebrating.

Dear friend,

Greetings (Namaste)

Lalit’s mother is getting this letter written by the community volunteer. Greetings on behalf of Lalit’s parents to you – Please accept.

Lalit has keen interest in flying kites. The festival of Rakshaband, sister – brother’s festival of bond is very important. On that day sisters tie rakhi on their brother’s wrist.

ShriKrishna Janmashtami is a very pious festival. Please accept many best wishes for this. The birth of the Lord Krishna is celebrated.

I am getting this letter end.
