February to Easter
On the final day of the first Spring Half Term, Chase Terrace Academy held its second successful foodbank morning. Once again, we had a busy two and a half hours with a steady trickle of shoppers. Due to the generosity of our community, customers were provided with a wide variety of food and essentials including: breads and cake, tea coffee and sugar, baby food and a vast array of fresh fruit and vegetables which would help them to stay afloat over the half term break. The younger members of the families, who came along with their parents and carers, were treated to a pancake with sauce and a book to read. We would like to thank all staff from Chase Terrace Academy who assisted on Friday and gave us a little helping hand.
At this point it is important to recognise some unsung heroes at school who have supported this foodbank initiative without even being asked. Our site team are amazing and regularly move your food donations to our storage area and often return prepared parcels to our main entrance. Additionally, we do not want to forget our team on reception who take your phone call requests for support; pass on urgent emails and often put midweek food parcels together when the foodbank team are teaching. Finally, to our ladies in the offices who publicise the foodbank, sending out notifications and information. Thank you all.
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 or phoning us to ask how you can help out. Every little thing that you do has allowed the foodbank to function smoothly and provide assistance to those who are in need.
We will continue with the foodbank up until the Easter holidays, but our updates will now be half termly. Any information will be posted via our school Twitter or our Facebook accounts, so please look out for these notifications.
After our last foodbank morning we are depleted in the following areas and…
We are in need of these basic items:
- Tinned vegetables
- Tinned Meat
- Fresh fruit and vegetables (on Thursdays only)
- Fairy liquid

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.
