Today is all about giving back! We’re encouraging you all to donate to our new clothes bank in the Shannon corridor!

If you’re heading home for Christmas and don’t have room to pack all your clothes, why not donate some? Our first delivery will be to the Salvation Army, who do incredibly important work, especially over Christmas. Just bring your spare clothes along in a sealed bag and we’ll do the rest (we have a few spare bags hanging on the side if you don’t have one!).

If you don’t have any spare clothes to give away, why not consider donating to the Chaplaincy’s food banks? They’re located in the Ref and the Chaplaincy, and they’re looking for any donations of tinned food, biscuits, chocolate treats, toiletries, long life milk, and juice boxes. 

A HUGE thank you for all your support - we’ll be back tomorrow with another very exciting giveaway🎅

A couple of pictures from today’s Remembrance wreath laying, where our Sport President Maisie laid a wreath on behalf of our students ♥️

We’d also like to share this message from War veteran Captain Tom Moore this Remembrance Day...

“For me Remembrance day is always the most special of days. A day to remember those we have lost but also those still serving the Country so gallantly, particularly today in these current difficult times...

"So, I respectfully ask Britain to stop whatever it is doing and take a moment to pause, think and be thankful...

"I for one will be quietly reflecting with my family reminding myself and encouraging others to live, with the optimism that if we stand shoulder to shoulder (metaphorically) tomorrow will be a good day.”
