Students launch bid to help feed city families

CARING students and staff at Christopher Whitehead Language College and Sixth Form have launched a plea for help in their bid to give a Christmas gift to those less fortunate.

The Bromwich Road school has taken the wraps off its annual Christmas food donation appeal to help families in need.

Students and staff hope to help 60 of the city’s most vulnerable families and have vowed no donation is too small to aid their quest.

Santa’s little helpers are on the lookout for canned food, cold meat, tuna, potatoes, vegetables, sauces and fruit.

Rice pudding, custard, sugar, cereals, jams, spreads, puddings, mince pies would also be welcome by the school.

Essentials such as coffee, tea, long life milk, hot chocolate, washing powder, soap, shower gel and toothpaste can also be donated.

For a festive theme the elves would also welcome any Christmas crackers or just a donation of £1 to help them reach their target.

Di Howland, the school’s funding and events manager said: “As we approach the festive season, we are mindful many of our families are struggling even more this year due to Covid and the effects of lockdown.

“We are appealing to our community, families and friends to help us support our most needy families this year.

“We have identified 60 vulnerable families who desperately need help and support this year and no donation is too small.”

Donations can be dropped off at the school’s art block reception. Call 01905 423906 for more.
