Martha Arranges Donations to Foodbank - We are so proud!

This year, I wanted to do something before Christmas to help other people and so I decided to do a collection for Poole food bank. The food bank helps give food to people who can't afford to feed their family or themselves. 

Usually people only need their help for a short time.  I spoke to Gill who runs the food bank and she told me the things that they really needed at this time of year (tinned meat, tinned veg, pot noodles).  So I made some leaflets asking people to help and also talked to my neighbours. I arranged to collect from their houses over two days after school.

Within a week I had collected more than 260 items. I then delivered them on Friday to the Food Bank.  They were extremely grateful and explained to meet how many families would be helped by the donations.

I got to meet some of the amazing people behind the food bank.  It helped some families in need but also helped me understand more about our local community.
