Parent volunteers and school staff from St Patrick’s Primary school in Greenock have organised a Broth and Blether with Warm Hand of Friendship funding.
On the first Friday of the month, parents, Carers, grandparents and pupils receive a warm welcome in the school canteen.
The school’s warm space offers access to peer support, access to their warm winter clothes and uniform share initiative, as well as access to hot soup, bread, beverages, biscuits, and the possibility to take away fresh veg soup packs, with accompanying recipes! They also offer frozen soup in containers to be heated at home and signposting to further support in the community.
Head teacher, Mrs Doherty, said: “our aim is to open up St Patrick’s Primary as a warm beacon of hope and friendship and offer practical support.”
