Student leaders from Downham Academy have delivered bags and boxes of donations to the food bank at The Sovereign Centre, in Downham following another collection.

After the success of last year’s collection, a group of student leaders wanted to make a further donation to the food bank.

Student leader Caleb Payne said: “We were really pleased to raise awareness and help a worthy cause directly in our community.”

Karen Stewardson, head of house at the academy who oversaw the collection, said: “I was very proud of the way the students conducted themselves and would like to thank all those who donated.”
