MESSAGE OF APPRECIATION FROM ST MARY'S FOODBANK
Hi all at Woodlea School,
I would like to thank you all for your very generous donation of food that you brought round today.
Due to the covid situation we were unable to invite you in to see what we do. I would be delighted to do so in the future.
The need for food is high at the moment with more individuals and families struggling with furlough or redundancy. Your donations will help ensure that we can keep supplying parcels to those in need.
It was lovely to see the bright smiling faces of so many very soggy children who were a delight to meet.
I hope you all have a very happy Christmas.
Leyland (St. Mary’s) Foodbank coordinator.
Despite Woodlea and the rest of the country being in 'lockdown', we wanted to show our respects for those that have ;lost their lives in conflict.
Our Team Captains went to the Council Offices and listened to the Mayor, witnessed the firing of the cannon and observed the 2 minutes silence.
Meanwhile in school, all the children went outside in their bubbles. Myself and other staff read poems of Remembrance and spoke about the significance of the day, 11.11.11 and the reasoning behind the Red Poppy.
At 11am, the church bells chimed 11 and the canon was heard from the Council Offices: this started Woodlea's observation of the 2 minutes silence.
An email from Leyland Food bank to say 'Thank you'.
To all pupils and staff
I would like to thank you all for your very kind and generous donation from your harvest festival.
We will be able to give food parcels to our individual clients and families who are struggling at the moment. We anticipate an increased demand for help as more people are struggling due to the Covid pandemic, so your donation will be a great help over the next few weeks.
Please pray for our clients and us, and we will pray for you all,
Leyland (St Mary’s) foodbank coordinator
