Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

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.
