Home-Start – making a difference

Once again, members of SI Beverley and District have been baking items for Home-Start Goole.  They were able to contribute fruit cakes, jams, biscuits and chutneys to add to the Hampers and Christmas Fair stall.
‘We had lots of visitors, the school choir sang and the cakes and jams went down well – please thank the ladies who donated them.’
The Drop-In day was clearly a success in both publicising the work of this tremendous organisation and in raising much needed funds to continue their valuable work.  Trained volunteers support young families in those early, and sometimes stressful, days as new parents.  In addition, the Goole group have begun english language classes for some of  the many new members of the community.  In this small quiet community there is at least one school where  80% of its children  do not have english as their first language.  This is not only difficult for the children but also for their parents.  This is where Home–Start are making a difference.
We really appreciate their efforts and hope to continue our partnership in the future.
