Foodbank Update – Week 11

Preparing for the February half term break

As your children prepare to take a well-earned rest for the February half term, it is really important that we try to ensure that all the families in the Chase Terrace Academy community are well fed and looked after in the forthcoming week.

With this in mind, we have been preparing for our second foodbank that we hope that you have seen advertised via our school Facebook and Twitter accounts. It takes place on Friday 12th February, starting at 10.30 and finishing at 12.30 in the Sixth Form block. It is very important to note that we are very keen to support all the schools in the local community as we have been supported by the wider local community with donations.

We continue to be grateful to our Chase Terrace families for taking time out of the day to drop donations into the entrance of our main reception. We have also accepted substantial gifts of food from Matt, the Vicar of St John’s Church in Heath Hayes, The House of Bread and Angela from Kean Styles. The Burntwood Lions have also seen our efforts online and after a lovely phone call sent in a very generous cash donation which will go towards stocking our depleted shelves after the event this week. Thank you so much. The community spirit really has kept us all going in such difficult times.

Moving Forward:

We believe that our community is still in need of our foodbank so we will continue to run it until Easter and make another decision at this point.

We are in need of the following basic items:

  • Fresh fruit and vegetables (on Thursdays only)
  • Fairy liquid
  • Washing detergents
  • Bathroom products including toilet rolls
  • Household cleaning products.

As always your support on social media has been invaluable. Please continue to back the initiative in the ways that you know how. We remain in this together and would like to thank you all for your help so far.

It is most important that those families who are need contact the school. We have a good selection of items and your calls are confidential.

If you require a parcel please contact us on:

We hope that you have a safe and restful half term.

Foodbank Update – Week 9

Another Busy Week

As numerous staff at Chase Terrace Academy continue to come into school to complete much of their teaching and supporting of key worker students, we have been so grateful with their ongoing contributions to our foodbank too.

Thank you to our Chase Terrace community for taking time out of the day to drop donations into the entrance of our main reception. Many of you do this completely anonymously. These deliveries are really welcome and the families receiving the parcels that we put together are extremely grateful.

The foodbank team have now developed a good routine: collecting, packaging and delivering food. Our main distribution day is Friday with Ann dropping off sometime in the morning. That said, if there is any family who needs a helping hand at any other point in the week we will always find the time to make up a parcel. There is generally a spare one placed in reception so that we can accommodate you immediately if required.

We do need to keep our supplies full and therefore appreciate anything that you can spare.  We have highlighted below where our stocks need replenishing if you are wanting to provide something specific.

We are in need of the following basic items:

  • Packet snack rice/noodles
  • Jam
  • Sugar
  • Tinned Vegetables
  • Tinned meat/ fish/protein
  • Puddings
  • Crisps/biscuits
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables (on Thursdays only)
  • Fairy liquid
  • Washing detergents
  • Bathroom products including toilet rolls
  • Household cleaning products.

As always your support on social media has been invaluable. Please continue to back the initiative in the ways that you know how. We remain in this together and would like to thank you all for your help so far.

It is most important that those families who are need contact the school. We have a good selection of items and your calls are confidential.
