Support from the Four Counties of the Catholic Diocese

Wonderful to be present tonight at a ‘Fashion Show’ held by SPANNED (Supporting Adults with Addtional Needs in the Nottingham Diocese). Participants posed on a catwalk dressed in bin-liner outfits and Fr Frank Daly talked to them about people sleeping in bin liners. We were presented with a cheque for £500 collected by the five branches of SPANNED in Nottingham, Scunthorpe, Hinckley, Loughborough and Derby. We also received a van full of clothes donations and individual donations from SPANNED volunteers to buy new underwear for our clients. All of this happened because FR Frank had seen recent coverage  in national papers The Catholic Universe and The Catholic Herald about our partnership with St. John Houghton School. Perhaps best of all…. everyone had a wonderful time.
