A group of children at Bressingham Primary School have been collecting food for the Waveney Foodbank.

The children had been learning about the foodbank, why people need to use it and how it relies on donations.

The Diss Express reported late last year that the Waveney Foodbank had reported a 390 per cent increase in people who use the local foodbank, in just a six month period of 2013.

On the back of what they learnt, the children decided to help by gathering together a donation themselves.

Hand-made posters were used to promote the appeal around the school, and donations of suitable groceries were soon piling up.

“Our teaching staff feel very proud that these children were inspired to help the Waveney Foodbank,” said Gavin King, Headteacher.

“The project has provided a good understanding of helping the local community as well as an appreciation of voluntary involvement.”
