Laleham Lea School in Purley dropped off their Harvest Festival collection at Purley Food Hublast week to help support local families in crisis.
A mini-bus full of items including long life milk, soup, pasta and dehydrated potatoes were donated by Laleham Lea families to the Purley-based charity who are urgently requesting donations in the run up to the Christmas period.
Ms Barry, Head teacher at Laleham Lea said: “We are a longstanding supporter of the Purley Food Hub and the wonderful work they do for local families in need. We are delighted to help again this year with our Harvest Donations and I would like to thank all of our Laleham Lea families and Staff for their generosity.
“Helping those in need is a key part of our Catholic ethos here at Laleham Lea and we hope that this donation helps in some small way to support the fantastic work that the Food Hub does for the local community.”
Louise Willmer, Acting Chair of the Food Hub’s Management Committee, said: “We were so pleased to receive the mini-bus load of Harvest food donations from Laleham Lea on Wednesday and are very grateful to the school’s families and staff for their generous support again this year, along with other schools and many churches, organisations and individuals.
“Already in 2021 we have delivered food for more than 25,000 meals to struggling clients and their families in Purley, Coulsdon, South Croydon and Waddon. With families in crisis this winter facing rising prices and higher energy bills, we are thankful for every donation we receive to help local people in need.”
