BWA students donate two minibuses of food to Corby Foodbank!

As part of its Christmas celebrations Brooke Weston Academy asked students to bring donations for the town’s foodbank and they generously gave hundreds of items that needed two minibuses to transport!

The school asked for donations from students, and circulated information about the sort of items that were most needed. The donations were requested as part of Christmas Jumper Day today and the response from students and staff was phenomenal.

Associate Principal Shaun Strydom said: ‘We were amazed by the amount of food that our school community generously gave and  are delighted that it is going to help the local Foodbank, that provides such a valuable service, particularly as this year has been very challenging for so many people. We wish everyone who either donated, or who will receive this food, a very happy Christmas on behalf of the school.’
