Gateshead Food Bank Collection

In school this year we are all working together and taking part in a Reverse Advent Calendar. We are collecting food and toiletries for people in need within our local community. Lucy from the Gateshead Food Bank visited school and talked about the important work they are doing and how we can help as a community.

Link to Hope – Shoebox Appeal

Today we had the pleasure of welcoming into school Jimmy and his team from the Link to Hope charity, who came to collect all of the wonderful Shoe Boxes we have created at home and in school for those families in Romania, Moldova, Bulgaria and Ukraine. The team were amazed by our efforts as a school community. Our Mini Vinnie Team helped to pack up the boxes and fill the van.
