Food Bank Donation

Huge thanks to our Maple Cross community for raising a magnificent £231.30 at the KS1 Christmas performance and Christmas Celebration at St Thomas’ church.

Our School Council agreed that this should be donated to the local food bank so that we can help local people who, for a variety of reasons, don’t have enough money for a decent meal. Iris, from the food bank, explained to the School Council how the food bank works and showed them how they organise all their food. It’s quite an operation!

Mr Roberts often talks about ‘making a difference. By making your donation, you helped us to help Iris and her team to make a big difference to nearly 70 people/families in the WD3 area.

Thank you, and Happy Christmas!
