Once again, we will be collecting for Home-Start this Christmas (one of the UK’s leading family support charities) and would really appreciate any food staples that could be used to make a meal, for example. pasta, rice, sauces, tinned tuna. Cereals are also in high demand, and any little luxuries would be most welcome too. Home-Start will be collecting from school on Wednesday 12 December and so any donations must be received before then, but please can you ensure that they are not past their use-by dates. It would be lovely if, as a school, every child could bring in at least one item to make the Christmas of people less fortunate than ourselves something to look forward to. Donations can be given in to your child’s tutor and will be very gratefully received.
