Every year, Verulam School collect items for Feed, the food bank run by The Vineyard Church. Their record is 4851 items, which they are attempting to beat this year.
This morning, four Year 10 boys turned up with a massive 346 items (pictured in the crates below) that they had bought with their own money. One of the boys has been a regular big giver to Feed since he joined in Year 7 and he has gradually persuaded more and more of his friends to join him. They even negotiated with Tesco to give them a 10% discount as it was for charity.
The school are trying to get it into the paper so we’ll update you if that makes it to print. We are always blown away by the sacrificial giving that students make to this worthy cause, showing us that young people really do care for their community.
