2023 Penryn & Falmouth Foodbank Collection

24 November 2023

In recent years, we have held a collection for the Penryn & Falmouth Foodbank as a way of supporting the local community at Christmas time.

We are aware these are difficult times financially for many families, but any contributions towards this year’s collection will be gratefully received.

Donations can be handed in at our main reception rather than in tutor bases, so that pupils don’t feel pressured to contribute.

Students will have an assembly next week, in which they will learn about the role of foodbanks. They will be able to donate from the date of their assembly up until Friday 15 December.

Below, you will find a list of the items that are currently needed.

As always, thank you for your support.
