Carlton Le Willows Academy pupils spread Christmas cheer with festive foodbank appeal

Students from Carlton Le Willows Academy have been gifting food and essential supplies to those less fortunate this Christmas.

Students loaded up the food they had collected earlier this week as part of the school’s annual foodbank appeal in aid of Hope Nottingham.

All 56 form groups and Academy sixth formers have collected boxes of goods to send to the charity to help stock Netherfield and 13 other foodbanks, accessed by people in need across the district this winter.

Head of House Dave Hemstock said: “When we delivered to Hope last year volunteers were blown away by the amount of donations – one of the biggest single donations they had received. The school community has been extremely generous again this year, digging deep to help people across our wider community this Christmas.”
