The Year 6 girls have been considering ways to help support the local community this autumn.  In the process of preparing for an assembly for our Harvest Festival and cake sale, they came up with the plan for a food drive or collection to support a nearby foodbank at the Westminster Chapel (part of the Trussell Trust).  We would be enormously grateful if families were able to bring in food or essential items that are desperately required by families in need in Westminster.  Please see the list of the items that are currently in demand.  If you are able to bring in anything at all, we would be hugely appreciative of your efforts to support the sterling work that goes on every day at this foodbank and to support the girls’ idea.  Items can be brought in to school between Monday 3rd and Wednesday 5th October and the team at the Westminster Chapel will then come and collect the items.

This is the current list of what is needed at the Westminster Chapel food bank which is part of the Trussell Trust:

UHT Milk
