Last week, Fulford School held two Christmas Jumper days and students and staff were invited to support the York Food Bank by bringing in donations for the food bank and also monetary contributions.
The school had an amazing response and raised close to £850 alongside a vast amount of donations to support York residents.
Russell Harris, Associate Headteacher, said “The support given by the whole school was phenomenal. The pupils chose which organisation to support and due to this the enthusiasm for it was excellent.
It was a pleasure to support a worthwhile and local charity like the York Food Bank, while helping to develop empathy in our students. We aim to support both local and national charities in the future as much as possible, and will continue to use pupil voice to determine who and how we do this effectively”
The school would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who supported the event.
