Welcome to our Make a Difference Committee page. Our Ambassador is Mrs Ryall and will be looking at how we, as a school, can make a difference in our local community.
Our project for December is a reverse advent calendar, with each class taking part in the weeks running up to Christmas. The children will be helping to stock our local food bank in East Durham to help those who are not as fortunate as ourselves.
We are asking children to bring in 1 item each day for week that can be used to stock the food bank. Items must be tinned or dried nothing chilled or fresh, and preferably in small packets.
The food bank is in desperate need of:
- Tinned soups, meat, fish, fruit and vegetables
- Rice and pasta
- Toiletries including toilet rolls, nappies, shower gel etc.
- Teabags and instant coffee
- Baby food
- Longlife milk
Each class will take part during a specific week in the run up to Christmas.
Our new challenge for the period of Lent is 40 days of giving. We are asking all children to bring just one item in from the list below so we can make up packs to give to the women’s refuge and local people in our community.
The items we are collecting are:
- Shampoo and conditioner
- Toothpaste and toothbrushes
- Soap and flannels
- Any other sanitary products or personal hygiene products.
