Grant received to provide food parcels to 370 students during the festive period

We’re delighted to have successfully gained funding of over £15,000 to enable us to provide a food parcel to students who receive free school meals.

Worcester City Council has provided a grant for £14,800 as part of the Government’s Household Support Fund, which is designed to help the most in need this winter meet their food, energy and water bills. An additional £500 has been received from our school food supplier Almanhall.

These grants are allowing us to provide 370 pupils with a £40 food parcel, which includes Christmas treats and food cupboard staples to help families through the holiday period.

Jane Price, Headteacher, said:

“Christmas can be a worrying time for some households, so we’re pleased to be able to provide the food parcels to help alleviate some of this concern.

“It has been a school-wide effort to get the food parcels ready for parents to collect, but an extra special thanks needs to go to our Head of Year 11 Clare Morris who has worked tirelessly in making all the arrangements.

“Thank you also goes to Worcester City Council and Almanhall for this fantastic grant, to Sainsbury’s in Kidderminster for their amazing help is providing the majority of the food, and to DHL for collecting the food and delivering it to the school free of charge.

“We hope the food parcels help our students to enjoy their Christmas break.”

Season’s greetings to all our staff and students, and their families, and we look forward to seeing everyone again in the New Year.
