Students dig deep after learning about food bank
STUDENTS were moved to help their community after learning about food banks and the struggles faced by many residents.
Year 10 students at Poynton High School have been learning about the work of food banks in the community as part of their GCSE curriculum.
As a result they were asked to bring in their own donations to donate to the food bank.
Abbi Johnson, from the school, said: “The Year 10 response was overwhelming with around 100 items donated by students, parents and carers.
“These items included products such as packets of pasta, tins of beans, jars of baby food and even a few beauty products such as shampoo and toothpaste.
“Nigel Tedford, who works for Stockport Food Bank, came to collect our vast array of donations from our Year 10 students.
“Nigel and Stockport Food Bank were both highly grateful for our donation.”
A food bank is also based at Silklife Church, on George Street, Macclesfield and is open for food collections on Tuesdays from 9.30am until 11.30am.
If you would like to donate food to the bank, please use the donation point in Sainsbury’s on Cumberland Street.
