World Day for the Poor Foodbank

Foodbank 2

To support Pope Francis’ third World Day of the Poor initiative on Sunday 17 November, we held a whole school, home clothes day to support the local foodbank.  We asked students to bring in a donation for the foodbank rather than pay the usual £1.00.  Once again, the generosity of our parents and students and staff was outstanding and the foodbank were overwhelmed by the amount of food collected.  Our collection will make a real difference, it will prevent people from going hungry in their own homes, help stop parents from skipping meals to feed their children, or people having to decide between eating and paying the rent!  Once the foodbank are able to notify me of the amount collected, I will let you know.
