Food Bank Appeal
We are pleased to announce that Weston Road Academy will be running our annual Food Bank Appeal again this year. We continue to support Rising Brook Church to help provide a hot meal for a number of local families over the Christmas period.
This year has seen an increase in demand for food banks across the country and Rising Brook are now providing 2500 meals a week. They are experiencing such high demand this year and have an extra 20 to 25 people requesting help on a weekly basis. Many families in the Stafford area will sadly be relying on the Rising Brook Food Bank to get through this Christmas.
We are attempting to collect a mountain of long-life food and hopefully put together some festive food bags for families in our area. The kind of items that are in demand are: tea, coffee, long life milk, sweets, biscuits, selection boxes, tinned meat, Xmas pudding, Xmas cake, hot chocolate, tins of soup, cereals, soft drinks, crisps and any other items that you would like to donate.
Please donate what you can to help feed a family over Christmas. I really cannot think of a better gift to give than a hot meal on Christmas day.
Many thanks in advance for your donation. The deadline for all donations is Wednesday 7 December.
Although the above date is the absolute deadline we would gratefully receive items a few weeks before.
Many thanks on behalf of all of the families you are helping to feed over this festive season.
