Every year around Christmas the staff and pupils at Studley High School like to make a donation to a charity.
Historically we have supported Operation Christmas Child, however this year we decided to do something a little different and focus more on the people within our local community.
We collected and donated over 700 items for the Arden Foodbank to help people in the Studley and Alcester area. The foodbank provides emergency food to people in crisis.
Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. A simple box of food makes a big difference, with foodbanks helping prevent crime, housing loss, family breakdown and mental health problems.
Foodbank clients bring their voucher to a foodbank centre where it can be redeemed for three days’ emergency food.
We are so proud of our pupils for the kindness and compassion they have shown during this time. Arden Foodbank were delighted with our donation and our pupils and staff contributed one of the largest donations they have ever had.
Here is their response:
