Over the last few weeks, students and parents have been donating food to fill up a trolley for local people in need. In addition, cash donations have been flooding in to support our local foodbank. Volunteers from the Foodbank came to collect the first full trolley back in November. Students are continuing to bring in goods to fill another trolley!
Due to the generosity of parents and students, we raised an amazing £850! With the support of the Co-operative food store in Wem, this has been boosted to £1000 worth of Christmas supplies.
In liaison with the Foodbank, we have provided essentials items needed. Items donated include Christmas cakes, mince pies, biscuits, stuffing mix, Christmas crackers, crisps, chocolate logs, custard etc. All will go to families in need over the Christmas period.
Last week, we met volunteers from the Whitchurch Foodbank at the Wem Co-op who had come to collect all the items.
Thomas Adams would like to say a big thank you to Wem Co-op Manager, Simon Thornley, for his continued support.
