Philanthropy Club at Centre maternel
In early December a group of 11 girls from the Secondary School Philanthropy Club organised a visit to the Centre Maternel de Mont Boron in Nice. We have been supporting the centre for several years now, through hands-on direct philanthropic service and also by raising funds and awareness for their various projects, helping young or underprivileged mothers to find jobs and look after their children.
We brought some cakes and toys with us, and spent the afternoon playing with the children and socialising with the mothers. It was very fulfilling to see the smiles on their faces and they seemed to greatly appreciate the visit. For our next trip, we are collecting old high chairs, prams and toys for young children, so if you have any that you would like to donate please contact the group leader: Marina, Class 12 via the Secondary School Reception.
Please also come along to our Voices of Christmas event on December 13th at 7pm, in the school cafeteria, where we will be selling home baked goodies in aid of the Centre Maternel.
