Earlier today, we delivered another outstanding contribution to the local foodbank in Peterlee and, once again, the generosity of students and staff at the Academy has amazed us!
It's very easy to get wrapped up in presents, parties and pantos at Christmas time. But, for some people, Christmas is tough and some families have to rely on foodbanks due to unforeseen circumstances. Christmas is also a demanding time for foodbanks across the UK, with more and more families struggling to make ends meet at this time of year and therefore having to rely on food banks to feed their families.
Our local food bank at East Durham Trust delivers on average 40 food parcels a week, but with growing demand over the Christmas period they have already hit the 200 mark. The foodbank relies on big donations like ours to get them through such a demanding time.
Thank you to everyone who donated, you really have made such a big difference to families that need it the most. Merry Christmas!
