Chetwynde families donate 300 meals

Kind-hearted Chetwynde School families have donated the equivalent of 300 meals to Barrow Foodbank to help people in need.

Pupils from Year 6 and Year 11 delivered 170kg of food, which was collected at the recent Primary Harvest Festival.

They heard from staff and volunteers how the service works and took a tour to see the supplies.

Pupils at the school, which is part of South Cumbria Multi-Academy Trust, said they felt a huge sense of pride that they were able to support those in crisis.

Among those delivering the food were newly-appointed Chetwynde Primary Heads Vimash Thambeliya and Jasmine Smith and their deputies William Brough and Skyler Story who have pledged to support the community in their leadership roles.

Vimash, who started at the school in Kindergarten aged three, said: “I want to use my role to help other people and raise money for charity.”
