School supports Amble Food Bank with Christmas jumper day
James Calvert Spence College in Amble held a Christmas jumper day in aid of the town’s food bank.
Students and staff at both the South Avenue and Acklington Road sites wore their favourite festive jumpers to school.
Those taking part were asked to make a small monetary or food donation for Amble Food Bank.
In total the school raised £217.71.
Amble Food Bank volunteer Lynne Morelli collected the money along with bags of food and other groceries.
She thanked staff and students for thinking of the charity at this time when the food bank is experiencing increased demand.
Katrina Cassidy, pastoral support officer at James Calvert Spence College, said: “For this year’s Christmas jumper day we thought it was particularly important to support the local community. It’s been a difficult year for lots of local families, and students were so happy to be able to help.”
There is a food bank drop-off point at Amble Co-op and ready-packed bags of items at Morrisons in Amble.
