As part of our Harvest celebrations this year we would like, as a school, to make a donation of food and essential items to a local food bank.
We have supported The Padley Group for many years and although their hostel in Derby has now closed they still run a food bank and a day centre and will be welcoming harvest donations again this year.
Padley and their beneficiaries rely heavily on harvest gifts to provide hot meals and emergency food parcels to people who have recently experienced homelessness, experiencing homelessness right now or who are at risk of homelessness all year round.
We have put a box in the school entrance and donations can be placed in there before or after school or children can take them to their class and they will be brought down to the office.
Please send in non-perishable items only. Padley have sent a list of food items that they are most in need of which is attached. They will also accept toiletries and items such as toilet rolls, washing up liquid, washing powder etc.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND PET FOOD OR BABY FOOD.
We will be accepting items until next Thursday, 7th October.
Thank you very much for your support.
