We had wonderful success in the run up to Christmas with our food bank and we have decided to make this a permanent fixture in the school – giving our learners some amazing opportunities to look at charity work, citizenship, empathy and kindness.
The foodbank will be situated in the rotunda outside the medical room and children can drop off anytime.
What To Donate…?
We cannot accept perishable goods for the foodbank or anything requiring to be chilled.
We can accept things which aren’t food – toileteries, household cleaners, laundry detergent, sanitary products, baby products (inc nappies).
