This summer our youth group at St Mary’s are working together on a Social action project to raise the profile of the Friary in East Leake and the surrounding villages.
We want to inform and encourage people to pray for their work, raising funds to keep the Friary’s services going and collect urgently needed items of clothing and footwear for the many who access the services.

The Friary

Founded in 1988, the Friary was created to meet the needs of the homeless in Nottingham. Open in those early days just once a week and run by volunteers, the Friary is now a UK registered charity maintaining its distinctly Christian ethos to serve the poor and opens its doors on the Musters Road, West Bridgford, 6 days a week.

Responding to the ever-changing complex needs of the homeless, the Friary has tailored its services into the extensive provision today. The ministry serves people who are hungry, in crippling debt, homeless, struggling with mental and physical ill-health, substance misuse and addiction, unemployment, illiteracy, domestic abuse and social exclusion.

The Challenge

The KS3 & 4 Growing Deeper groups are spending 6 weeks walking, running, swimming, paddling, and cycling to clock up 2,000 miles, to raise money. The 10 teenagers, plus 2 adults, want to raise a pound for every mile covered. All of them will need to cover 28 miles a week for each of the 6 weeks to meet their ambitious target.
