The Besom Witney Charity

On Tuesday we were joined in Collective Worship by Julia and Paul who work for the Witney branch of the charity ‘The Besom’. Julia and Paul shared with us the incredible work The Besom does in our local community and how it provides for individuals and families in times of need.

They told the children how they pass on good quality household items such as furniture, children's clothing and toys and pass these onto people who need them. They also explained that they distribute gifts of food. Throughout the year we will be encouraging our children to engage with the charity’s work, (which is also supported by St Mary’s Church) to develop our children’s understanding of the importance of living well together and caring for our community.
