Woolie and the Good Shepherd Appeal


Who is Woolie?

Woolie is the new Good Shepherd mascot. The Good Shepherd Appeal and the Community Services is supplied by Nugent Care to the most vulnerable people in our community.

WHO started it?
Father James Nugent started the Good Shepherd Collection in 1902

WHEN did Father Nugent live?
Father Nugent was born in 1822 and died in 1905

WHERE did he work?
He worked mainly in Liverpool but also spent some time in Wigan and Blackburn

WHAT did he do?
Father Nugent could see the problems of poverty in Liverpool and helped to educate, house, feed and clothe those in need.

HOW does Nugent Care continue this work today?
Children – We provide care and education for children and have an adoption service.
Adults – We help to support the elderly, people who are hard of hearing, Deaf or who have a learning disability as well as people who are homeless.

WHY should you be involved?
We should follow the example of Father Nugent and show that we care for others.

Our fundraising will help them to continue our work.

Class 4 voted for what activity we could do to help raise money for the Good Shepherd and we voted to do a Sponsored Walk to Otterspool!

Look at the map of our walk. We walked there and some of the way back. Approximately 5 miles!

Class 4 were tired after our walk and our legs were very achy but it was worth it to raise money for those in need! Keep posted to find out how much money was raised! Thank you for everyone that sponsored the children. Your donations were very much appreciated.
