We have named December – ‘Helping Others’ Month

Christmas has always been a time for helping others. SRC has decided to make this official. This December we want to encourage everyone to help each other. Doing the smallest thing for someone else can make a big difference.

Many people aren’t as lucky as we are, not everybody's family can afford to buy them presents or cook a Christmas dinner. Please take a moment this month to consider how you can help someone else to have a happy Christmas! This month please think about the little things you can do to help someone else (but don’t forget to check it out with a parent or tutor – keep yourself safe at all times!).

Make a difference The welfare and youth work team are collecting dry foods and toiletries which will go to local vulnerable people for Christmas. Please donate anything you can to help give someone else a happy Christmas.

If you have any concerns about wearing your ID, please speak to your tutor. Staff will ask to see your ID if you aren't wearing it visibly.
