Do you have any warm winter coats you no longer wear that might keep someone else warm this winter?

This year we are proud to support Cardiff Rotary's "Wrap up Cardiff" initiative.   

Wrap Up Cardiff is a campaign run by Rotary Clubs in Cardiff in partnership with the registered charity Hands On London. The central idea of Wrap Up is simple: there are many people in dire need of warm clothing in winter, and others who have warm coats in good condition which they want to give away.

Thick warm winter coats (including gilets, fleeces and anoraks) donated to Wrap Up are being collected by Rotary volunteers and each garment is inspected to ensure it is clean and in a good condition to be given away.

St Mellons C/W Primary School are collecting warm, clean coats of any size so they can be passed on to someone who needs it. 

Please bring your donations into school by Thursday 27th October. 

Thank you for your support.

Thank you very much to everyone who donated to our fundraiser in support of the Ukrainian refugees. We raised a fantastic £500! 

A phenomenal amount for such a small school, thank you for your generosity.

• Supporting fire fighters and civil protection units
• Training people up in life-saving first aid
• Helping families stay in contact with each other

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
