It is a sad reality that some of the young people who attend our groups come to us in the afternoon not having eaten since breakfast, if at all, that day. We often provide food as part of our groups, or do cooking activities, for this reason. In some areas of north-east Cambridge, 1 in 3 children live in families that are in receipt of benefits, many of whom are entitled to claim free school meals. Statistics show that not all of these families claim their entitlement.
So, could you ‘Give it up for Romsey Mill’? At this time of year, many people give something up for Lent, and often it is related to food and drink. If you decide to do the same, could you donate the money you save to Romsey Mill, to help children and young people in Cambridgeshire who don’t have the luxury of giving something up?
Donations can be made via our website www.romseymill.org/donate, by cash or by cheque made payable to 'Romsey Mill'
