NATIONAL CITIZEN SERVICE: Thank You from the Teenagers in action!

Several of our parish teenagers have been involved with this scheme in which they had just 2 weeks to plan & then carry out a social action project for a charity. 

A pop up Car Wash took place in our car park for which our ever generous parishioners donated over £400! Thank you! 
They did a 15 km sponsored walk from the children's hospital around to 3 McDonald's branches in Town, Filton and Cribbs Causeway, they ran a cake sale in the galleries, did some gardening at Ronald McDonald house itself & and put out requests for donated items for Ronald McDonald House to use when supporting the parents of critically ill children in the children’s hospital. 

Look how much you donated! 

The students wish to Thank St Augustine’s parishioners for such a generous & kind response to their project. The final total came to £980! Fantastic!

Frankie from Ronald McDonald House Bristol contacted us with this message “We are so very grateful to the community at St Augustine’s for their generosity & incredible support. We have been ‘blown away’ by the amount of donated items from our wish list as well as the amazing amount raised from the teenager’s car wash! Simple household items like cleaning products, bedding etc help keep our house running, ensuring we can provide a comfortable and inviting space for families in need. Likewise the £400 raised from the car wash will completely cover the costs of accommodating and supporting 1 of our families for 11 days which is fantastic! Without the generosity of people like you we would no longer be able to provide this vital space for families going through the toughest of times. We cannot thank you enough!”
