Christmas Food Appeal – Thank You

A message from Mrs Brown, Head Teacher at Langar Church of England Primary School

The kindness and generosity of our community never ceases to amaze me, and today’s gesture has moved us to tears!

The Parish of Wiverton in the Vale started an appeal to provide children on free school meals and their families with parcels of food to make Christmas a special time [read about the appeal here].

The response to the appeal has been incredible. So much so that we have been able to make up hampers, not only for our own families, but also to send to Cropwell Bishop. We also put aside the non-perishable items and have sent them to The Children’s Centre in Bingham where they are putting together food parcels for families too.

This year has been so challenging and difficult for us all. There have been times where we have been in the position of ‘helper’ and other times the position of ‘helped’. We hope that these hampers are well received, in the manner that they were intended. As one gift tag said, ‘I hope it all helps. No child or family should feel ashamed to receive these gifts.’
