Redditch Foodbank Christmas Collection starts today (20th Nov 2017)

Christmas Hamper Collection

Staff, students and visitors can donate food for Redditch Foodbank, who visited the academy last week to launch form P3’s Christmas Collection. The Foodbank donate to local people in crisis and Christmas is their busiest time, in particular this year with the introduction of the new Universal Credit system. Some families are waiting up to 6 weeks for their money. Please donate as much as you can!

There are collection points in all form rooms, the staff room, behind main reception and the food room. The food they are desperate for are items such as fruit juices, tinned fruit and veg, UHT milk, rice pudding, dried mashed potato, and jam. They also need Christmas themed treats such as Christmas pudding and chocolates. Toiletries come in handy too. The one thing they have plenty of is baked beans, so donations of these are not required at this time. If every student and staff member donate one thing, dozens of local families would benefit. Christmas is the season of goodwill to ALL men, not just some so please help us achieve our goal.
