Burnt Mill Academy’s food bank feat

Burnt Mill Academy staff donate for food bank’s Christmas appeal

BURNT Mill Academy, Harlow, is taking the lead to provide those less fortunate with a better, less hungry Christmas.

Donations have been made since the beginning of the month, collecting for the Harlow Foodbank. This is the staff’s annual tradition, and they want to do the best they can considering the additional impact coronavirus has had on those already vulnerable.

Amy Sadler, second in English, explained “The food bank launches an appeal this time every year as it is so important, especially given the current situation, that all families have enough food to enjoy their Christmas together. We felt, as a part of this community, that we should do our part to help.

“Burnt Mill Academy is an important part of the Harlow community and we therefore felt it vital that we support the local food bank as they work tirelessly to ensure no family goes hungry at Christmas.“

The school has been responding to the food bank’s critical foods list, and ensuring bags upon bags of donations are full— “I have had to make several drop-offs to the food bank, dropping off four huge boxes of food, as well as a number of bags full”, said Ms Sadler.

“The donations made by staff have been gratefully received and will go a long way in helping those who need it at this time of year.”
