Unsurprisingly, December is the busiest month for foodbanks around the UK as families and individuals prepare for Christmas. Our annual delivery to the Collier Row foodbank, based at Ascension Baptist Church, saw a group of Year 10 volunteers deliver well over 100kg of food parcels, toiletries and other necessities for distribution.
Whilst at the foodbank, students worked alongside staff to sort and date produce into batches. The staff of the foodbank praised the students for both their efficiency and their enthusiasm. Pleasingly, students now have plans to extend the work we do with the foodbank – there will be regular deliveries throughout the year.
