Put a spring in their step

Spring’s a time of renewal and growth; and at St Mary’s we don’t have to look far to find evidence of it!

Our children have started waking up earlier in the mornings, and aren’t as reluctant to get out of their warm beds. There’s definitely a fresh feeling of hope in our cottages.
That’s why we’re hoping that you’ll send a donation to our home today, to help us keep up with the demands of spring!

Because you should see how our teenagers have shot up in height over the winter! It’s a bit of a mixed blessing – while we love to see our children thrive and grow, it also means that their clothes from last summer simply don’t fit anymore.

And with the weather heating up, it’s in all our best interests to make sure we’re stocked up on toiletries like soap, deodorant and toothpaste!

Your contribution, made here, will put a spring in their steps and show them that they’re cared for.

Most of our children have experienced a traumatic past and with your kind support, we can provide them with everything they need to heal their broken hearts.

So please, will you make your online donation here and help us kit out our kids in summer gear?

Gifts in kind are also hugely appreciated. So if you’re doing your annual Spring Clean and have unwanted items in good condition, such as clothing, bedding, or household appliances, please will you donate them to us?

Gifts in kind may be dropped off at the home every weekday from 8am-4pm, or telephone 011 435 3820 to for arrange collection.

Thank you for caring about our children – and helping us provide them with a safe and loving home.
