College community collects food for those in need


STUDENTS, parents and staff at Warrington’s Priestley College filled five shopping trolleys with food for the town’s Food Bank.
The collection was made over the Christmas and New Year period – and now the Food Bank has issued a big “Thank You”.
A total of 275.15kgs of food was collected to help feed people in Warrington who, through no fault of their own, found themselves in hardship, distress or crisis.
The donations could also be used for the foodbank’s children’s project where schoolchildren who normally receive free school meals receive food through breakfast clubs or during holidays.
Food Bank manager David McDonald said: “It was an absolute delight to meet some of the students who were involved in the campaign,
“We would like to invite students to visit our warehouse premises to gain a more knowledgeable insight to the workings of the foodbank warehouse and also the volumes of food we constantly require to be able to continue to feed those who need our service.”
Warrington Food Bank relies on business partners and sponsors to continue providing its service.
Ken Halliday, a member of staff at Priestley, was amazed by the response from the college community.
“When I decided to organise the collection I had no idea we would fill five shopping trolleys with food,” he said.
“It was wonderful to see everyone come together to make a difference for those who need support in our local community.”
