Purfleet Primary Festive Food Bank Success!
By Purfleet Primary student
PUPILS at Purfleet Primary Academy have collected food donations over the festive period in order to support vulnerable families.
The response from the local community has been overwhelming with members of the local community generously giving both food and gifts towards the cause. The pupils of Purfleet Primary Academy would like to say a huge “Thank-you” to all donors from the community for supplying such a vast amount of food, drinks, personal hygiene products and presents.
Many families will benefit from their generosity this Christmas.
Mr Samuel, headteacher, said: ‘It was certainly touching to see the overwhelming response from the wider Purfleet community. Our children feel that Purfleet has got its’ heart back’.
He has decided to continue to help families in need throughout the year by collecting food donations.
