Roberts Primary School got together with School Council members from St Marys and Maidensbridge primary schools and met up with Vi, a fantastic lady who runs Leslies Care Packages (LCP). This is a charity that helps homeless people. Not only does she get donations for the homeless people, she helps them find places to get hot food and somewhere to live.

We found out some interesting facts about the homeless. People become homeless for a number of reasons - losing their job, losing a loved one, because they have mental health issues. There are also homeless people living in shelters who she provides care packages with food they can cook.

For people who are sleeping rough, Vi told us the main thing people need is clean socks! New underwear, biscuits, tinned foods, chocolate are also great.

The homeless dont always need money, sometimes a smile is enough.

The three schools are going to think of different ways of helping the homeless. There are at least 1000 children in the three schools and we thought initially of:

  • 1000 tins
  • 1000 pairs of socks

 

  • Vi also said that the homeless really appreciate a letter or card telling them that someone cares.
