School pupils across Daventry have been collecting items for donation to the town's foodbank.

Braunston Primary School children took part in a reverse advent calendar, which saw each pupil donate something.

They filled eight boxes of goods, which will be handed to Daventry foodbank next week.

Earlier this year, the pupils donated 57 bags of food to the foodbank and raised £279 for Macmillan cancer research.

Daventry's two E-Act academies - DSLV and The Parker - have also been collecting donations.

Inspired by the thoughts from their joint Ambassadorial Advisory Group (AAG), both academies were asked to share the good work of the foodbank and, in doing so, students and families would contribute to its cause.

Donations from both schools were dropped at one of the collection points, ready for the team to distribute them to the wider community.

The Parker's interim headteacher Bhavin Tailor said: "The generosity of our students, families and staff has been endearing.

"Such activities not only build our community spirit but it actualises our core values of unity, strength and endeavour."
