Volunteers hit Church Street for underprivileged children

It was a Saturday and Church Street was bustling with party-goers and shoppers. Amid the hustle and bustle, there was an activity in one corner of the street that could possibly light up the lives of underprivileged children.

A voluntary organisation from the city had organised an activity in front of Blossom Book House to collect books and stationery  for children from a government school. A group of volunteers managed to grab the attention of passers-by towards their cause. Global Concerns India, which has adopted a Government School in Tamil medium near Gardua Mall in the cit organised an event to raise funds and stationery for the children of the said school.

Bhagya Bose, a  volunteer, said, “For the first time such an activity is being organised. The group has managed to collect carton boxes full of pens, pencils, books, paint brushes among the other things for these schoolchildren.” The NGO supports the children and the school which has over 80 students.
