 Angela Peach received a certificate for being a dedicated volunteer to House of Mercy. 
This was presented at the Old Town Hall at the SKC Fair on
Thursday 22nd March.

St John's Catholic Comprehensive School, its staff and Year 13 students were 'sleeping out' on Thursday 22nd March, to raise funds for the 'House of Mercy, Gravesend'.

Led by their prefect team, students and teachers spent a night gaining insight into the hardship of homelessness in pursuit of helping charities like 'House of Mercy' eradicate homelessness in our community all together.


We are very grateful for the donations and support.
