Year 7 students have been making a contribution to their community by donating  food to our local foodbank. Over the past few weeks, they have been learning about UK hunger and have collected a fantastic 713 items for the Trussell Trust Bestwood and Bulwell.  

Last week, three students from the tutor group who collected the most donations were selected to help to deliver the items to the foodbank so they could see for themselves where their food would be going. They learnt about how some local people are in need of help to feed themselves and their families. Nigel, who works at the foodbank, explained that they give people enough food for three days. When people collect their food parcels. the volunteers at Trussell Trust also try to get people to sit down with a drink and a biscuit to talk about how they could find help out of their situation in the future.

If you would like to donate to a local foodbank, the Trussell Trust have collection points at Tesco Bulwell and Top Valley.
