The reality of being homeless, cold and vulnerable in today’s society inspired a group of students from The Nicholas Hamond Academy to act. They knitted scarves and blankets which were presented to Major Barry Wilson, from The Salvation Army on his recent visit.
Students were truly moved when he spoke about his own life experience and how this had led him to working with those less fortunate and left living on the streets.
He said he was “overwhelmed at the generosity shown by all” including the fact that, after a change of uniform style, the academy also donated 200 warm fleeces to this worthy cause.
