Lady Katherine Leveson Primary School donate much-needed items to help the homeless

Solihull Editorial 25th Jul, 2018   0

KIND-HEARTED schoolchildren have packed up boxes ready to give to homeless people when they settle into their new homes.

Staff, pupils and parents from Lady Katherine Leveson Primary School teamed up with St Basil’s Centre in Birmingham to provide a number of ‘starter packs’ for those who are going into their own accommodation.

The Temple Balsall school collected enough ‘everyday essentials’ including cutlery, plates, cups, bedding and towels to fill three boxes.

St Basils, which has centres across the West Midlands, helps support vulnerable young people to get back on their feet following a time of crisis by helping them to find accommodation and working with them to give them the skills needed to make the transition to independent living.




One of the ways St Basils does this is by providing a ‘starter packs’ for the young people they help.

These starter packs help increase the chances that young people will be able to move on successfully.


Headteacher Simon Russell said: “We were really pleased to be able to support this wonderful initiative and help to give a vulnerable young person a helping hand in life.

“The response from our fantastic families has been tremendous and we look forward to supporting St Basils again in the future.”
