Working with our local community to help people in need is very important. To that end, we teamed up with Ivybridge Link, a local food pantry. Students were encouraged to donate non-perishable food items and toiletries. This campaign ran from Monday 12 – Friday 16 December.

Essential food items required by the food bank included:

Toiletries & household items (priority)

Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, toothpaste, toothbrush, sanitary pads/tampons, deodorant, toilet paper, washing up liquid, antibacterial wipes, laundry detergent, multipurpose spray, nappies, baby wipes, baby food, baby formula.

All donations were collected by their Form Tutors, House & Citizenship Ambassadors and Senior House Ambassadors during morning registration. The foodbank was so grateful for the amount of items raised.
