Generous St Helens College 14-16 Academy students, have rallied together to collect an abundance of essential food items for our food bank donation point, to help those less fortunate than themselves.

The idea of a communal food bank was suggested by our very own Student Council last year, who thought the scheme would be the perfect way of giving back to the community, and showing support to the residents of St Helens.

The food bank sees a selection of dried and tinned goods donated each month, which once full, is taken to the community food collection point at local supermarket, Tesco, who donate the goods to their partnering charities, The Trussell Trust and FareShare.

St Helens College 14-16 Academy Head Teacher, Keiron Tucker, commented: “I am immensely proud of the student’s efforts and contributions to our food bank. It's lovely to see them involved with such a good cause, helping those less fortunate than themselves. The pupils regularly bring in different items, so a big thank you to them and also to their parents.”
