Bishop Vesey Grammar school donate Christmas presents to our young people as part of ‘Giving Tree’ campaign

Bishop Vesey Grammar School ran their ‘Giving Tree’ campaign again this Christmas, encouraging Sutton Coldfield shoppers to donate a Christmas present to Birmingham’s homelessness charities.

Bishop Vesey Grammar School who are long time supporters of St Basils have once again supported us through their ‘Giving Tree’ campaign. This campaign was the bright idea of some kind-hearted sixth form students.

Shortly before Christmas, all the presents were wrapped, then Beth, Pierce and Eli (pictured) loaded up the van with the presents and dropped these off to St Basils as well as some other city homelessness charities.

After such a tough year it was wonderful to be able to hand these out to some of our young residents! We’re very grateful to Bishop Vesey Grammar school, their students and all the shoppers who supported this campaign!
