Books for Mayfair Convent


The response to the request for donations for Mayfair Convent has been completely overwhelming and heart-warming. We are going into our last week of collecting and will be sending all books and materials to them on Friday 12th October. If you haven't had a chance to have a clear out yet, you still have a few more days. We currently have around 3000 books. Ms Kenyon been in communication with the headmistress and the librarian and has shared a few of their comments:

'I am so excited to have received your letter regarding your amazing plan to donate new and other books to the Mayfair library. You cannot begin to know what it means to me and what it will mean to the children and teachers at Mayfair Convent. I have been hard at work trying to clear the library of totally redundant and very dusty books and now I know my plan to provide the children with a vibrant and resourced library is going to become a reality. Thank you and all the children, staff and parents involved from the bottom of my heart….I am over the moon….. I was once again at the school today and the children are getting impatient with me and begging me for them to start reading. Obviously much work needs to be done before they can start taking out books but I have a team of teachers who are going to be able to help me with the donated books.' (Eleanor Hough – Librarian – ex headmistress of McAuley House)

'Thank you and the Brescia Community so very much….I am so excited – I can't imagine how excited our learners will be. There are some children who have never borrowed books from a library before so it will be a totally new experience for them.' (Mandy Baillie – Principal)

Thank you all again for your awesome generosity.
