Over 2,500 items to Worcester Foodbank
At the end of last year, students showed their generous side by donating more than 2,500 food items, as well as £50 in donations, to the Worcester Foodbank as part of the school's Christmas Canned Food Drive.
Taking place between 30th November and 16th December, students from all year groups were invited to donate non-perishable items. Teachers and students got behind the appeal with one form group donating a fantastic 355 items between them.
Erin Butler, Lead Practitioner for Mathematics at Bishop Perowne, organised the appeal. She commented:
"Our Canned Food Drive encouraged everyone to think of others in the lead up to the festive period and it was wonderful to see the Bishop Perowne community come together to support a worthy cause. Thank you to all students and their families who donated. With the recent government announcement, it's likely the Worcester Food Bank will be called upon to support more people in our community and we're pleased our donations will be able to help."
