Over the last month, the collective efforts of our dedicated students and supportive parents culminated in a remarkable initiative to gather food donations for the Hertford & District Food Bank. The outcome of this endeavour was nothing short of extraordinary, as we successfully accumulated an impressive 820 kilograms of food items.
In 2022/23, food banks operating within their network provided a staggering total of 2,986,203 three-day emergency food supplies and extended essential assistance to individuals facing crises across the UK. Among these beneficiaries, a significant portion, 1,139,553, were children. The substantial contribution made by our community will undoubtedly have a profound impact on the well-being of numerous individuals in our local area.
This accomplishment stands as a testament to the strength of our St Edmund’s College community. We take pride in the incredible collective effort and compassion displayed by our students, parents, and all those involved in making this meaningful difference. Together, we demonstrate the power of unity and the positive change we can bring to those in need within our community.
