In September 2018, we started supporting a charity very close to the hearts of people living in our local community & Benefice: Help Hoima. We have established a link with a school in Hoima and in September 2018 we were delighted to welcome the Bishop of Hoima and his wife to our school, where they enjoyed sharing in a very special Collective Worship and talked to us about life in Hoima and the work of the 'Help Hoima' charity. In February 2019, Helen Chatfield (Youth Pastor for the Benefice) and her daughter (a regular volunteer at our school) visited the school. They took some Bibles and books as a gift from our school community and enjoyed sharing them with the children there. The school sent some handmade gifts back to us. The visit inspired us to support the school with their reading and so, for World Book day 2019, every child in our school made an early reading book for a child in the school in Hoima; both schools are a similar size, although the school in Hoima is only for chidlren aged 5 - 7, so ealr reading books were just what they needed! In addition, we fundraised for some book storage for the school. The Benefice volunteers are kindly laminating and binding the books for us, which will be sent out to Hoima soon.
Here is a picture of Hannah reading one of our donated books to the chidlren in Hoima:
