Sixth Form take action to help the Homeless in Lancaster and District

As the cost of living crisis and rising energy prices put immense pressure on people, one in four adults have become financially vulnerable, and the number of those at risk continues to grow.

Our Sixth Form Senior Team have been instrumental in setting up a donation point in the Sixth Form Centre for their peers and their families to donate recommended food, clothing and toiletries for anyone seeking support from the charity.

Those with low wages/salaries (or no employment at all) have gone from “struggling to get by” to “not getting by” and LDHAS is already seeing an increase in the daily attendance of clients and in the number of phone calls from people seeking advice or support.

Thank you to everyone who has so far donated items or joined in the Year 12 lunchtime fundraising activities in Sixth Form Reception.
