Christmas Jumper Day

A huge thank you to our Post-16 Executive who organised Christmas Jumper Day on Friday 16th December.

They decided to support Wansbeck Valley Food Bank as well as Save the Children and asked students and staff to bring in either a £1 donation or food from the list below:

  • Tinned fruit / vegetables / baked beans / soup
  • Small boxes of cereal / tea bags / jam and other spreads
  • Toiletries / toilet rolls / shampoo and conditioner / shower gel / toothbrushes
  • Chocolate / Christmas puddings / packets of biscuits

Their efforts were rewarded with £710 for Save the Children and a fabulous amount of food for the Food Bank. Luke Richardson, Mitchel Douglas and David Clayton dropped off the food at the Ashington  Centre and helped to load the van, which will distribute the food to those most in need.

More details on the valuable work done by Save the Children and the Food Bank can be found on their websites:
