WHGS Christmas Charity Collection

Monday, 21 December 2020

Every term, our House Leaders nominate which charities we will support as a school and on the run up to Christmas, we knew that our local foodbank, Manchester South Central Foodbank, run by the Trussell Trust, was the right choice.

Across the week 7th-11th December, our pupils were asked to bring in food and clothing items for struggling families and old people isolated because of the pandemic and we were overwhelmed by the response: we collected 406kg of food that equates to around 968 meals.

A massive thank-you to the members of our school community who donated so generously and also Jo Warmington and her volunteers at the foodbank, without whom this vital work would not be possible.

Heroes all. Merry Christmas and all the very best for 2021!
