TIPTON SCHOOL SUPPORTS ITS COMMUNITY THIS CHRISTMAS
Q3 Academy Tipton provide food hampers for 200 families this year
Q3 Academy Tipton is delivering two hundred food hampers to local families this week. With many struggling this year due to the Covid pandemic, the Academy wanted to support its local community.
Fundraising has raised over £2500 in one month and many local shops and business have donated items such as food, little treats, essential hygiene items and even Christmas crackers.
Headteacher Keziah Featherstone said, “We did not want to raise the money from the students themselves, so there were no sponsored activities or non-uniform days. All money raised came from other avenues with the staff, governors, trustees and friends of the Academy donating what they could. We are particularly touched that many created and donated their own hampers. The kindness and generosity has been overwhelming.”
Helpful Sixth Form students and staff have packaged up 200 boxes full of food and other items for delivery over the next few days.
Staff are delivering the hampers in pairs, following strict Covid-19 safety precautions.
