Students at Wilmslow High School have been helping to gather donations for the Wilmslow food bank project 'Food Friend Organisation', during February and March.
Following the success of the food drive in October, students contributed towards this very worthy cause, helping those in desperate need in the local areas.
Ms L Rajahm curriculum leader for social studies, said "A week of assemblies were led by the Rev. Paul Smith and Flo Knowles, who informed students that the need for organisations like this has continued to increase in the current tough economic climate. They also provided accounts from individuals who faced destitution and who had been helped by the organisation."
The project, led by Wilmslow Parish Church, is run by volunteers and food is collected by parishioners and others in the community. The volunteers liaise with other community organisations and representatives to identify those people most in need.
