School Council members were thrilled to receive a visit from Maureen, a volunteer at Hospitality and Hope. Maureen brought many boxes with her so that all of your cans and dried foods, received as part of our ‘Canny Friday’ initiative, can be stored safely.
The School Council cannot wait to count all of the donations received so far.
This half term, our School Council are collecting donations of canned and other dried foods to help the South Tyneside Food Bank. Providing emergency food parcels for local individuals and families in crisis, the food bank is run by ‘Hospitality and Hope’. This is a Christian faith based charity that was established in 2002 to help support vulnerable individuals from within our community.
Donations of canned and dried foods for the food bank can be sent into school with your child each Friday. Our School Council members will be involved in sorting these donations, prior them being collected by the charity.
The first ‘Canny Friday’ will be held on Friday 10th March. The event will continue to be held, each Friday, until the end of term.
