The Garibaldi School Charity initiative

As part of The Garibaldi School Charity initiative and social action agenda, instead of the traditional £1 non uniform donation, we asked our students and staff to donate some food or toiletries to the Sherwood Food Bank, and my goodness me, did our students and staff deliver! (much like the big man himself!) All of our student arrived to school this morning in their fantastic festive clothing, to be greeted by big smiles and festive tunes where students donated in their droves.

It was phenomenal to see all of our students recognising the need and significance to support others within our own community over the festive period. As a result of the foodbank drive, we were able to donate a significant contribution.

Sherwood Food Bank collected the donations on Friday 15th December and with the help of our student leaders and willing staff volunteers, we were able to load it all in to go to those who may benefit from a little extra help this Christmas. The collection drivers, Dennis and Owen (pictured with students) passed on their sincere gratitude, they said ‘the donation was absolutely fantastic’ and were keen to invite Garibaldi students to help with donation sorting in the future. We look forward to building a collaborative relationship with the Sherwood Food Bank.
