School Council 2016.17

As you may know, every half term The School Council nominates a charitable cause to promote within school. Last half term we had our shoe box appeal and this half term we have chosen Warrington Food Bank.

Unfortunately, many people in the Warrington area face hunger on a daily basis. The food bank provides three days of nutritionally balanced emergency food to people in crisis. We need your help to collect together items to help families in need around the Christmas period, the foodbank has asked us if we could provide Christmas treats in particular.

Each class will collect items and donate their box to the foodbank the week before Christmas. Items such as selection boxes, festive themed sweets and mince pies would be gratefully received as well as packets and tins of food. Please ensure all items have a sell by date past Christmas since the boxes will not be delivered until the 16th December. The foodbank has requested that any Christmas puddings donated have no alcohol content.

Each child will be given a date to bring their contribution for the foodbank, should you wish to support our fundraiser. The idea is for us to run ‘a reverse advent calendar’, giving something back each day rather than receiving.

Thank you in advance for your support and generosity,
