Look Up Look Forward

Our Lady and St Columba 
Epiphany Lunch

Our Lady & St Columba Parish Wallsend established a group looking at ways to reduce loneliness for our elderly parishioners. The group has evolved from their Covid pandemic stewards. We funded a two-course hot lunch followed by entertainment from a singer. The aim being that social interaction between young and old will make the community grow.

We supported work to enhance the garden area to make it a lovely area to sit and relax Making sure it was full of flowers so it feels happy and bright for everyone who sits there.

Colorful Threads

St. Aidan’s RC Primary School, Ashington
Mini Vinnies

We supported development of a prayer garden to be used by children, staff and parents. This allowed St. Aidan’s to have a designated prayer area, a quiet outside space to allow all to pray and reflect on the changes COVID19 has had upon our lives. Alongside this, gaining the inspiration from nature to move onwards in our lives and learning.
