Food Bank Overwhelmed by HGSA Generosity

At the start of December we asked all of our tutor groups to start their own collections of goods for a food bank based at St Andrew’s Church in Langley Mill for this year’s school-wide Christmas campaign, Pledge to Provide.

Mrs McLeod, Year 8 Assistant Achievement Leader, and a team of student helpers delivered the heaps of filled boxes to the church on Monday 20 December, having to do 2 trips in the school minibus to get it all there. As well as the mountains of food brought in by students, they were also able to take what our team of cleaners and our English department had kindly collected.

The church sent a letter of thanks which can be read below.

Well done and thank you to everyone who has supported our community by contributing to our appeal, and a special thank you to Mrs McLeod for organising it so well and for making it such a success.
