Abacus Pre-School is once again supporting the Midland Road Homeless Project this Christmas by collecting tinned & packet food and other essential supplies.
The Bristol-based charity provides around 80 meals per day and solely relies on donations from the public.
The Abacus @ Meadowbrook pre-school in Bradley Stoke held a ‘woolly hat day’ on 9th November, when children were encouraged to bring in an item of food and wear a woolly hat for the day in exchange for a £1 donation.
Abacus has supported Midland Road for many years and its donations are always very much appreciated. Collections will continue up until 14th December and further events are planned for next term.
Amanda Lacey, manager of Abacus @ Meadowbrook, said:
“We think that it is especially important for the children to understand the gift of giving during the Christmas period.”
