End Child Poverty indicates that, during the ongoing pandemic resulting in online/home learning, the rate of child poverty has flat-lined and children have suffered both academically and emotionally.  The Friends of St Mary’s Parent Teacher Association (FOSM) therefore sought financial assistance with the purchase of sports equipment and an outdoor kitchen station to enhance the development and delivery of after-school / extra curricular activities for the betterment of the children.  A grant of £1,060 from The Clothworkers’ NI Fund was awarded.
