Archbishop Holgate’s School has sent off another van load of donations to York Foodbank, just months after their pre-Christmas donation. They are proud to be the only York school to have a permanent, all year round, Foodbank collection point.
As usual their boxes of donations contained lots of baked beans, other tinned goods, loads of pasta, plenty of cereal and many other things too. However, their primary focus in recent weeks has been the collection of Easter eggs for the clients that use the Foodbank. Each form in the school has been challenged to work together to bring in a few eggs. In addition individual staff and pupils have also donated too. This meant that they were able to send several hundred Easter eggs to the Foodbank, surpassing the number they collected last year.
