Students at the Neale-Wade Academy in March were challenged to make up a hamper using cardboard boxes donated by a local business.
Atif Iqbal, assistant head of Post-16 at the school, challenged all form groups to decorate and fill the boxes donated by Smurfit Kappa with non-perishable food items for our local foodbank.
After the final judging had taken place, Knowles Transport sent a lorry to deliver the hampers to the foodbank.
Form groups worked on their hampers during tutor time (25 mins per day) during the past half-term.
The judges then chose a winner from each year group. The six6 winning hampers were then judged by Liz Neal and Bob Dunlop from Smurfitt Kappa and Barbara Taylor from the foodbank.
