Shelter Scotland ~ How It Helps by Sarah, Erin and Ashlyn

We are just about to begin studying the play Stone Cold by Robert Swindells. This play  deals with the very serious issue of homelessness. We had to chose an aspect of this issue to research. We chose to find out about Shelter campaigns to combat homelessness.

The Shelter Organisation

Shelter Scotland was founded in 1968 and it is an organisation that helps people keep or get affordable and safe homes. Shelter Scotland tells us that every 18 minutes a household in Scotland becomes homeless. This has caused 3250 homeless families to begin living in temporary homes. The organisation also lets us know that shockingly in 1 year there has been an increase in rough sleeping by a huge 10%.

What Can We Do To Help

Shelter Scotland tells us what we can do to help fix homelessness. They tell us that there should be safe and affordable homes for everyone, ensuring help is available for everyone, So they can find or keep the one they are currently staying in. Shelter also ensure that there is a safety net for housing so that if someone did happen to lose their home they wouldn’t be alone and could get help.

How They Help

Shelter Scotland helps these serious issues by organising campaigns and fundraising events. What they do to fundraise is bake sales and gala balls and more. They also have shops you can go inside. You can also volunteer, donate any items that you do not need and you can also donate money to any of the 40 shops all over Scotland. One thing they haven’t yet don’t but are looking to start is making renting fit an fair for all.

Conclusion 

Overall we think that homelessness is not fair and homes need to be fit and fair for all. We need to do something and Shelter already do a great job of that but we need to help as well. As Charles Dickens said:

“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.”
Charles Dickens

 

 

 

And if everyone helps someone, then everyone will be helped.

Merry Christmas and a happy new year in Basque:

– Gabonak eta zoriontsu urte berri bat

One of my favourite christmas  carols are silent night. Heres the words

Silent night, holy night!
All is calm, all is bright.
Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child.
Holy infant so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace

Silent night, holy night!
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia,
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born

Silent night, holy night!
Son of God love’s pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face
With dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth
Jesus Lord, at Thy birth

How to say Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year in German:

Frohe Weihnachten und ein glückliches neues Jahr und allah akbar

The Wassail Song

The Wassail Song : Lyrics

Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green,
Here we come a-wand’ring
So fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

We are not daily beggers
That beg from door to door,
But we are neighbors’ children
Whom you have seen before
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Good master and good mistress,
As you sit beside the fire,
Pray think of us poor children
Who wander in the mire.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year

We have a little purse
Made of ratching leather skin;
We want some of your small change
To line it well within.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Bring us out a table
And spread it with a cloth;
Bring us out a cheese,
And of your Christmas loaf.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

God bless the master of this house,
Likewise the mistress too;
And all the little children
That round the table go.
Love and joy come to you,
And to you your wassail, too,
And God bless you, and send you
A Happy New Year,
And God send you a Happy New Year.

Christmas by Elle

Away in a Manger  Lyrics

Away in a manger, no crib for His bed
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the bright sky Looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

The cattle are lowing the Baby awakes
But little Lord Jesus no crying He makes
I love Thee, Lord Jesus, look down from the sky
And stay by my side, til morning is nigh.

Be near me, Lord Jesus, I ask Thee to stay
Close by me forever and love me I pray
Bless all the dear children in Thy tender care
And take us to Heaven to live with Thee there

William J. Kirkpatrick in 1895.

Plus,

 

My favourite carol is Silent Night. composed in 1818.

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin mother and child.
Holy infant, so tender and mild,
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight;
Glories stream from heaven afar,
Heavenly hosts sing Alleluia!
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born!

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love’s pure light;
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth,
Jesus, Lord, at thy birth.
