Food Donation Appeal
Student Ambassadors organise Christmas Food Donation Appeal for Hinckley Area Food Bank
Our Year 10 Ambassadors are organising a Food Donation Appeal for the local Hinckley Area Food Bank (Linked to the Trussell Trust).
Students are asking each tutor group in Year 10 to create a decorated food hamper with donated contents that can be delivered to the food bank, with a prize for the best Christmas themed decoration.
It doesn't stop there, inspired by Year 10, Year 7 students in The Bridge are also getting involved and creating their own tutor group hampers filled with donated goods.
Each tutor group was introduced to the appeal during Friday’s registration and will be discussing the food donation and decorating their hampers in their tutor sessions during week commencing 6th December. Each group have been provided with talking points, such as the one below, to get them thinking about the positive impact their donations and generosity will have:
An act of kindness has more impact than any present
It doesn't stop there, inspired by the Year 10 idea, Year 7 students in The Bridge are also getting involved and creating their own tutor group hampers filled with donated goods.
This food donation appeal allows our students and staff to help others over the festive period and to take pride in supporting those within our wider local community. The generosity of our school community has always been moving, with previous food bank collections to support our local community seeing hundreds of food and toiletry items donated to support those in need in the run-up to Christmas.
