To all in the Chase Terrace community. The foodbank that you have supported has been a resounding success and we have given out almost 500 food parcels in the local area. It has been an absolute pleasure to be able to drop off weekly foods and have essentials available for collection.
Next week will, unfortunately, be our last delivery to you due to time constraints, additional workload in school and availability of food. The Physical Education Department, who have run this venture, are also keen to get the extra-curricular sports programme running again.
We will maintain a small food stock onsite, and some of our Duke of Edinburgh students are being trained to run a smaller foodbank initiative. They will be overseen by the Foodbank Team so that it continues to run smoothly. With this in mind, if anyone does find themselves in need in need, please call Chase Terrace Academy on 01543 682286 and organise to collect a parcel from our main school entrance.
Eggs for Easter Campaign.
This week we launched a new initiative that would support families in need, alongside supporting a local care home. Eggs that are donated will gifted to these two groups. Our aim is to collect 250 eggs. Currently we have about 50 so we still need your help.
Foodbank Open Afternoon
Please note that we will be running a Foodbank Open Afternoon on Thursday 1st of April, starting at 3:30 until 5:30, to support families through the Easter period. It will run in the Sixth Form Centre. Anyone attending will be required to wear a mask, unless exempt, sanitise on entry and will be allowed two bags of groceries and essential items. We are really looking forward to seeing our customers and will be providing home baked cakes and coffee.
We anticipate that we will not run anymore mornings until the Christmas period, but will let the community know well in advance of this happening.
Your support on social media has been invaluable, in addition, the kindness and generosity of this community has been overwhelming and has allowed us to stay open for almost six months. Thank you so much. We will stay in touch.
