We were delighted to hear that Gratitude has been nominated by Kenilworth School to be the recipient of their Harvest Festival charity collection this year
Our lead trustee John Carlisle was invited to the primary school in Borehamwood to give a presentation to the students about the work and ethos of our charity. He took the opportunity to describe the concept of Gratitude to the children and shared insights into life at the hub and how they support the community with the many generous donations they receive.
The children were inspired to learn about the concept of how we express Gratitude for these blessings and the joy we get from sharing those blessings.
In return for their generosity, staff and students at the school will benefit from receiving fresh fruit as part of our Free Fruit Tuesday deliveries.
During the visit, we discovered a photograph on display, of their lovely students on a visit to the hub on Mitzvah Day last year!
