Pupils at a Deepdale school have come together to collect donations for a local food bank.Advertisement
Year 2 teacher at Deepdale Community Primary School, Samantha Baker, organised the collection. She said: “Our incredible children have been learning about Christianity and in particular, last month, about Harvest.
“Part of their learning was to create Harvest Hampers to give out to a local food bank.
“After researching, Noor Foodbank inspired us with the work they are already doing. In a recent assembly we had the amazing opportunity to present the organisation with eight quality hampers, created by the children and their generous families.
“What a difference this has made to our local community, building those relationships and helping those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Some of the hampers were even given out that very evening.
“Noor Foodbank are doing a fantastic job and impacting thousands of people. It was a privilege to meet them and donate hampers to them, and we are excited to develop this relationship further.”
Imran Master from Noon Foodbank said: “We were contacted by Deepdale Community Primary School about the collection they were doing for Noor Foodbank.
“The assembly went really well, and we’re really appreciative of the school for organising the collection.”
