Children’s gift to others

CHILDREN at Pucklechurch Primary School collected food to help families in need had some Christmas treats.

The school’s ‘Equities Crew’ held a ‘reverse advent calendar’ food collection, encouraging other pupils to bring in different festive items for North Bristol & South Gloucestershire Foodbank, which runs food banks at nine locations including Resound in Blackhorse Road.

They then collected an sorted all of the donations and handed them to a representative of the charity.

Deputy head teacher Gemma Jones said: “Equities Crew helped him carry bags and bags of Christmas food out to his van – they had to make several trips, there was so much! 

“As always, we’re so proud of how generous our families were in supporting our community in giving local families the Christmas they deserve. We’ll definitely be joining in again.”
