Support for Refugees Appeal

The total raised so far from the Student Non-Uniform day on Friday 20 November is £856.00, we thank all who supported this worthy cause.

There is also a clothing appeal.


Non-Uniform Day Collection

The collection will be passed on to St Vincent de Paul. 

As a collective effort to support the refugee crisis St. Mary’s will be directly supporting the work of St. Vincent de Paul in settling refugees in Leeds.


Support for Refugees Clothing Appeal

We will also be supporting two charities, Kos Kindness and Kos Solidarity, who have asked Leeds schools to receive one of their clothing deposit boxes.

The emphasis on second-hand/used clothing are:

  • Fleeces, particularly microfleece
  • Track suit bottoms
  • Coats
  • Hats and gloves
  • Trainers
  • These items are needed for adults and children, but there is a particular need for male adult clothing and trainers.

All items to be brought into form rooms

“When Rob collected the clothing on Friday evening he said that it would be with the refugees by the 7th December. Our contribution will also benefit refugees in Lesbos and Kalymnos and wherever there is urgent need. He is so very grateful and will send us photographs and more information.”
