Christmas Tree for CIRDIC
In the week leading up to Christmas last year, we delivered our first Christmas tree to CIRDIC. This is the Churches In Reading Drop In Centre. We took the beautiful 6-foot tree in time for Christmas along with some decorations and a much-needed supply of socks! Around 90 students cut out and wrote beautiful messages of Christmas cheer which were then hung on the tree as decorations and wrapped around the socks as gifts for the homeless.
This is one of many trips The Piggott School will be making to CIRDIC over the coming year. We are working closely with the centre to discover their needs and as a wider school community, will create provision for them. As a Christian school, with our vision set to be Samaritans as Jesus taught us, we constantly seek to ‘go and do likewise'. We are looking forward to building our relationship further with CIRDIC and will be offering additional opportunities for students to be involved this year.
