At the end of November before we started our advent journey we had a special visit from our Old Headteacher Mr Gee. He now volunteers for the Canaan Trust ,a charity, based in Long Eaton, Nottingham the Trust serves the needs of homeless men from Long Eaton, Ilkeston, Sandiacre, Stapleford, Sawley, Cotmanhay, Beeston, Chilwell, and Toton – all parts of Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. They also run a food bank called the King’s Cupboard which we will be supporting during Advent
We thought a lot about how important Dignity is for all people no matter what their circumstance and how we must show dignity to all. We were reminded of the corporal works of mercy and what we can do to be a good neighbour to those around us.
