Amazing generosity and an overflowing food bank collection box!

September 26th, 2015

This week, I was amazed to discover that our food bank ‘share what you can spare’ box was overflowing with food! Families have been extremely generous, donating packets, boxes and tins of food. I emailed Reverend Peverell yesterday and he kindly arranged for someone to fetch the food and deliver it to a food bank in Middlesbrough.

imageThese boys helped me to pack the food into carrier bags – we were astonished at the number of bags we needed!
The ‘share what you can spare’ box will be in the entrance of the lower school all year round. I’m saving my carrier bags for the next time it’s full!
Thank you so much to everyone who donated food. It’s lovely to know that we are able to help our wider community and that we care.

    I like knowing that people who don’t have enough money still get food.

    It is a good idea to help poor people who can’t buy food. We thought about this in assembly.

    This has been a great talking point at home. We have talked about the food banks and why people may need the food from them, and ways we can help. My son has told me about how this has been talked about at shool and has asked me to buy an extra tin when shopping.
    A great way to help others
