Verulam School has been supporting foodbank FEED, which is run by Vineyard Church.

Despite the difficulties surrounding collecting donations safely, students have risen to the challenge in providing a whole range of nonperishable goods to donate, all of which will be used to stock the food bank and help those who find themselves in difficult circumstances.

Co-ordinated by the Year 11 house captains, students delivered over 4,600 items to the charitable cause.

Geoff Sutton, who co-ordinates the school’s FEED project, said: “Every year students from Verulam School excel at collecting items for FEED, and this year was no different.
