Friday Update – 8th October

8 October 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

The Gateshead foodbank is run by over 100 volunteers and they rely on the support of local communities to ensure they can continue their amazing work in reaching those families most in need. During the current pandemic, they have helped and supported over 600 people each week. You can find out further information about the important role they play here About | Gateshead Foodbank

From 18th – 21st October, we will be collecting donations to help the foodbank replenish their stock and continue to offer support to families within our local communities. All donations would be gratefully received but below is a list of the essential items they urgently need.

Have a lovely weekend.

Your sincerely,

Mrs R Swinbank

Acting Headteacher
