We are supporting Homeless Care and Noah’s Art Food Bank this year.
For the last five years we have asked students to donate a can of food, some dried goods or toiletries in the run up to Advent. The donations are then given to shelters around Maidstone to help those in need. This year our donations will be split between Homeless Care and Noah’s Ark Food Bank.
In 2017 we collected more donations than in any previous year and were able to give 2150 items to our charities. We have set ourselves the target of 2500 items this year and I am confident that not only will we meet this target but due to the generosity of our school community we will end up exceeding this target.
Each student has been asked to bring in at least one item before Friday December 7th. The donations will be collected by their form tutor and in exchange for every item they donate they will be given a raffle ticket, (up to a maximum of 25). On Monday 10th December the raffle will be drawn and the lucky student will winner a pizza lunch from Dominoes for themselves and four friends to share Tuesday lunchtime.
If anyone would like to donate to this cause please let us know or contact Miss Bennett
