Bishop's Stortford Food Bank visit sparks donations at Richard Whittington Primary School
Volunteers from Bishop's Stortford Food Bank visited the town's Richard Whittington primary to talk to pupils about their work.
The Thornbera Gardens school has adopted the charity, based at the Methodist church in South Street, as its good cause for the Christmas term.
Assistant head Amanda Wild said: "We're always looking for opportunities to support the local community. This autumn we're supporting the food bank and have asked our school community to bring in donations.
"We've had a fantastic response and are proud to be able to pass these donations on to the food bank.
"We also had assemblies for our Key Stage 1 and KS2 children where they learned all about what the food bank do and how they support local families. It's been a great experience for us all."
