On Monday, we had a special harvest assembly, along with a collection. We were delighted to see how many families brought in donations of tins and packets of food! We got in touch with the Morecambe Bay Foodbank, who were thrilled to hear from us!
They sent volunteers to school to collect all the donations and some Year 6 children helped to load all the food into the car.
The Foodbank sent us an email to thank everyone for their generosity:
To everybody at Torrisholme Primary School.
We would like to say a huge thank you for all donations collected this week.
We were delighted today when our volunteers came to collect the food, it was a good job they took a land rover as it filled it. Another team took over here at the foodbank and weighed the food which amounted to 221.9 kg.
In a special room another team then took over and made 8 food parcels to feed 8 families of two adults and two children. Each parcel contains enough food to last over 3 days. Your contribution provided over 300 meals and refreshments which will be distributed over the next few weeks.
You should be very proud of yourselves and we have welcomed your support.
