Once again Derby Grammar School is supporting YMCA Derbyshire’s young and vulnerable homeless people at Harvest. Our school assembly, lead by Rev Paul Taylor, takes place on Thursday 4 October in the School Hall.

Could you support us and make a difference to a young person this Harvest?

We are collecting:

Toiletries Cleaning materials Food Food Drink
Toothbrushes Kitchen Towels Tinned Meat Tinned Puddings Coffee/Tea
Toothpaste Toilet Rolls Tinned Fish Tinned Fruit Sugar
Shower Gel Washing Powder Sandwich Fillings Rice / Pasta Squash/Fruit Juice
Soap Washing Up Liquid Tomato / Brown Sauce Soups Drinking Chocolate
Shaving Foam Dish Cloths/Scourers/Brushes Tinned Toms/Beans Biscuits Long Life Milk
Female Hygiene Wash Up Brush Tinned Veg Gravy Granules Powdered Milk

Please do not include razors, as these are distributed as appropriate at the YMCA.

To add an element of fun in the gathering of these invaluable items, Miss Sellors will give a prize to the form who brings in the most items! That’s one for each of the Junior and Senior Schools.

The people we support often find themselves with little or no spare money to fund the bare essentials needed in life. Last year’s donations provided people with resources for up to three months. Not only that, our support also lets them know that someone is thinking of them and cares.

Please bring donations, no matter how big or small, to school ready for the Harvest service at 8.40am on Thursday 4 October.

Thank you.
