PUPILS at a Daventry secondary school came up trumps when they handed over donations of food to a local good cause.
Students at the Parker E-Act Academy (formerly William Parker School) donated all sorts of foodstuffs which were then packaged up and presented to Daventry’s Food Bank and Contact.
The Food Bank is based at Daventry’s Vineyard Church, in the former Danetre Garage building on Warwick Street/Waterloo.
It provides food hampers and other essential groceries throughout the year to people who find themselves in financial need, and tries to give the families and individuals it helps a little extra festive food at Christmas time.
This year they are aiming to help 600 people.
The students also donated items to Contact, a charity based in Daventry which recycles and refurbishes donated items of furniture and electrical goods for households who cannot afford such items, or find themselves in sudden need.
