A Pay-it-Forward Advent Calendar

A Pay-it-Forward Advent Calendar Junior School

For the month of December, the pupils of the Junior school were asked to approach the idea of an advent calendar in a very thoughtful, generous way. Instead of receiving a treat each day, they were asked to bring in a small donation of necessary supplies for children being hosted at the Kivotos tou Kosmou (Ark of the World) in Athens. This charity was selected for the admirable work it does in helping children and families of refugees from many parts of the world.

The children of St Lawrence and their families made a huge contribution, sending in packets of food, clothing and other essentials which were then taken by a representative group of children on 20th December, to the main building and centre of Ark of the World in Kolonos, Athens. Pupils got to see firsthand just how much valuable work is done by this charity and how important it is for us all to continue our support for it.

Well done to all and thank you for lending a helping hand once again.
