Black Friday, Cyber Monday – what about Giving Tuesday?

Dear Friends

You might not know it, but we recently had Giving Tuesday – a day to give back after the commercial madness of Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

This year, more than ever, it’s a great opportunity to show you care – and if you can, consider a donation to St Joseph’s.

It’s been a really difficult year for everyone. Coronavirus has changed how the world works for everyone – from closing schools for months on end, to preventing travel and forcing people to stay in their homes, unable to earn a living. Inflation has hit hard, and the cost of living is getting higher for everyone in Sierra Leone – the price of rice has increased hugely, for example.

As ever, the staff and pupils have been amazingly resilient. The school reopened in October and the majority of pupils have returned and are studying hard – delighted to return to the school community. But as ever, funds are tight – government support is very limited, and doesn’t cover boarding, food or many of the staff salaries.

Please consider Giving and  showing your support by making a donation – big or small, it will really make a difference, and help keep the school running for the children who rely on it.

Every penny donated goes directly to supporting St Joseph’s – the charity has no staff and is run by volunteers.

With warmest wishes,

Linda Freestone

On behalf of the Trustees
