Christmas Food Bank DeliveryDate Posted: 20/12/2017 | Posted In: Latest news
A Level Travel and Tourism students from QE have organised a delivery to St. Andrew’s Church Food Bank in Darlington ready for families to collect in the run up to Christmas. The food bank, situated on Haughton Road, distributes an average of 12 bags a week, totalling approximately 160 items and they are always very grateful for any donations made, particularly during the festive season. The students, who completed this wonderful act of kindness as part of their Travel and Tourism coursework, worked with members of staff from the College to collect as many donations as possible before making their delivery during the final week of term. Among the food provisions gathered were bags of sugar, non-perishable tinned fruit and vegetables, and packets of biscuits.
Nancy Wall, Course Leader for A Level Travel and Tourism, comments: ‘It’s hard to believe that in this day and age we need food banks, but we do. The students worked really hard to collect money and food in order to provide a better Christmas for families in Darlington’.
