Foodbank Collection

This week is the last week of the High School’s food bank collection for Dumfriesshire food bank. Friday the 17th December 2021 will be the last day to hand in any donations to the school. Pupils are encouraged to bring in donations to their registration teachers who will award them with a merit for their charitable contribution.

We have already seen an encouraging response to the email a few weeks ago but we strive to donate as much as we possibly can towards those less fortunate in our community during the festive period. Therefore, if you have not already, we would encourage you to discuss with your child at home about any item(s) which they could bring in.

Below is a reminder of the food/items which are required the most by the organisation:

Items Urgently Needed:

Tins of meat Cereal Tins of pet food

UHT long-life milk

Small packs of biscuits Toiletries (including sanitary products)

Other items

Tea and Coffee Baby food Rice

Crisps Sweets Jam

Tinned vegetables Sugar Tinned Fruit

Any donation, no matter how big or small, will be gratefully received.

Thank you once again for your continued support of our annual collection.
