Stu­dents pack up car­ing side

Accrington Observer - - NEWS -

KIND-HEARTED stu­dents have teamed up with so­cial care provider Maundy Re­lief to pro­vide care pack­ages to the Hyn­d­burn com­mu­nity.

A group of Ac­cring­ton Academy’s sixth form pupils cre­ated six care pack­ages com­pris­ing food, bottled wa­ter and toi­letries, all do­nated by them­selves.

They then ar­ranged to drop the pack­ages off at Maundy Re­lief in Ac­cring­ton where they were met by vol­un­teer Gor­don Dreghom who took the stu­dents on a tour of the char­ity’s var­i­ous sites.

Dur­ing the visit the stu­dents also took a ‘hand­son ap­proach’ help­ing to serve lunch to Maundy Re­lief ser­vice users.

Year eight pupils also pro­vided do­na­tions.

Ni­cola Palmer, Ac­cring­ton Academy’s head of school, said: “Maundy Re­lief do an in­cred­i­ble job in and around Ac­cring­ton and as a school at the heart of its com­mu­nity, we are pleased to have been able to lend our sup­port.

“Well done and thank you to all those stu­dents who took part in what was a very worth­while ven­ture.”
