We are joining other schools in Bury in support of the Tesco Food Collection Fare Share Appeal. Through this appeal, charities and not-for-profit organisations in the North-West receive items of food which provide a lifeline to disadvantaged people in homeless hostels, domestic violence refuges, breakfast clubs, lunch clubs for older people, and drug & alcohol misuse rehabilitation centres.

Tesco have given us three empty containers which we would like to fill with long-life food items and we are asking for your help to do this.

We would really appreciate it if you would arrange with your child to donate one or more long-life food items which they can bring into school and deposit into one of the containers. In order to further encourage participation, we are using our school’s House System. Each trolley will feature the House name and colour, and the school will award House Points to the House which collects the most food.

The trolleys are in Mrs Pollitt’s room on the Gym Corridor and will remain there until 11.30am on Friday 1st December. We are asking for donations of the following items of long-life food:

  • Tinned Meat
  • Tinned Fish
  • Tinned Pies
  • Tinned Soup
  • Tinned Fruit & Veg
  • Cooking Sauces
  • Pasta
  • Rice
  • Tea
  • Coffee
  • UHT Milk

Donations will be kindly accepted until Friday 1st December.
