Supporting Charities at
St. Catherine of Siena Harvest Collection 2021
All foods received will be donated to Birmingham City Mission, they distribute essential goods—food, clothing and furniture to individuals and families finding it hard to make ends meet.
This year with your help and generosity we will be able to add to the numbers of people receiving aid. Please bring any items of food that you can donate to the Harvest Collection, just one tin or packet really can make a difference to someone’s life. You can start bring items of food into school on

Foundation Stage Sponsored Bike Ride
To help raise money during Lent the Foundation Stage done a sponsored bike ride in the KS1 playground. We were able to bring our own bikes or scooters to school to take part. We also used our school tricycles to take part, it was lots of fun!
Visits to ‘The Resource Centre’ and ‘The Sanctuary’ at St Chad’s
Once again a huge thanks to all parents and pupils who donated food for the needy in our community. A selection of our Faith and School Council delivered all the food to both venues this week. Here is what they had to say: “
“I learned all about asylum seekers and refugees at the sanctuary”
“I enjoyed it when Andy took us round the Resource Centre and showed us round. He told us how the food was sorted by dates.”
Food Bank Collection at St Cath's
“I enjoyed giving the food to help poor people”
“I thought it was a good place to store the food and other different things to give to the poor people”
“I learned how the asylum seekers can go to the sanctuary to get things they need”
