Launching 2019: The Snug at Loreto

I don’t know what adventures 2019 holds for you, but at Step we’re very excited about opening up a brand new lunch club space at Loreto!

The school has generously offered us our very own room so, from January, I’ll be in there twice a week hosting a cafe-style club for the students. I can’t wait to build on the connections we made with the girls during our retreat days earlier this term, and to continue the fantastic conversations they started with us. I’ll have to thank them, too - their overwhelmingly positive feedback about the retreats and their requests to see more of Step are the main reasons we’ve been given our own area onsite. 

I’m having great fun transforming the room into a relaxed, welcoming space that we’ve named The Snug. We’re going for a ‘cosy living room’ vibe and would be enormously grateful for any donations.

I’m particularly on the look-out for:

  • Beanbags

  • Mugs

  • Neutral cushions and throws

  • Photo frames

  • Fairy lights

If you’re having a clear out and happen to stumble across anything that might fit the bill, please do email

A huge thank you must go once again to everyone who made the retreat days so impactful for the girls. Having had no connection with Loreto at the start of 2018, we now find ourselves with a brilliant opportunity which wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment of our volunteers and the support of everyone who prayed.

Bring on the new year!
