Creative food hampers were made by students at Neale Wade Academy who donated them to the March Foodbank in time for Christmas.

The project was part of termly challenges for post 16 students during form time.

The latest challenge was to design and produce a Christmas food hamper that could be donated to the town’s food bank and involved 12 forms in years 12 and 13 who put their artistic skills into action.

Dr Carole Spibey, assistant principal, head of post 16, said: “The students fully engaged with this activity knowing that they are helping support the people in their own community.

“The effort that they put in is a real credit to them. They worked really hard on their designs with amazing results.

“All 12 of the Hampers were packed with essential items that are desperately needed to support the Food Bank in March,” she said.
