Daventry students spread some festive cheer
DAVENTRY District Council’s Care and Repair team have been helping youngsters spread some festive goodwill by delivering Christmas food boxes to those in need.
For the second year children from Danetre School decided to create food hampers rather than have a traditional harvest festival.
The students asked the Care and Repair Daventry and South Northamptonshire team about which residents needed the boxes.
Councillor Alan Hills, DDC’s community, culture and leisure portfolio holder, said: “This is the second year in a row that the school have made such a wonderful gesture. The food boxes contain things like food tins, soup, tea bags and chocolate and our Care and Repair team have a very a good idea of where to distribute the boxes to those who most need it at this time of the year.
“I would like to thank the school and the students for their generosity and we hope that it provides those residents with a welcome early Christmas present.”
Maggie Hudson, from Danetre School, added: “This year’s Christmas hamper project was down to my Year 11 Certificate of Personal Effectiveness class, who designed posters to advertise around the school.
“Twenty-two hampers were provided by the school and this is the second year that we have run this project.”
