Pupils And Parents Respond Generously To Chaplaincy Food Bank Appeal

15 Dec

Princethorpe College pupils, parents and staff have once again responded generously to the seasonal Food Bank appeal. 

The school community was asked to bring in items of non-perishable food and they did not disappoint, showing a sense of empathy, generosity and solidarity. All the donations have been passed on to the St Vincent de Paul Society, to be packed into hampers and given to local families in need.

Mary Benham, Chaplaincy Coordinator, said, “The level of enthusiasm and support shown for our appeal was wonderful, affirming the school’s spirit of family ethos and showing that pupils embrace the communities they live in and are willing to help those who are less fortunate than themselves.” She continued, “It is easy to sometimes think that one person alone cannot make a big impact, but by bringing all of those individual small acts of kindness together we have been able to show how we care.”

A special thank you to the PTA who donated a whole box of Selection Boxes that will be sure to provide Christmas joy.

Thank you to all the pupils that helped with organising the donations, some of which you can see in the photo.
