Verwood school collects for food bank
THE School Council at Emmanuel Middle School in Verwood voted to make a difference to their local community as part of Harvest Festival this year.
After learning more about the Trussell Trust and how many families need to use the local food banks, the pupils decided to make harvest less traditional and more 21st century.
The newly elected school council saw the donations grow daily and encouraged their classes with a bit of healthy competition.
Pupils, staff and parents all contributed dried good items for the Trussell Trust Food bank and four shopping trolleys were filled after only a week.
