Caring Jude inspires Hunstanton students to support Food Bank

Have your say

Students at Hunstanton’s Smithdon High School have agreed to support an initiative introduced by Year 9’s Jude Falkner to donate to the local food bank for their 2015 project.

Jude is one of the volunteers who work for the food bank in Hunstanton and she, with mum Jane, weigh-in and sort food each Saturday morning.

As a member of the school council and recognising the local need, her suggestion was to make this a project for the whole school resulted in a collection of produce for the food bank.

Delivering the food was combined with a visit by the School Council to the food bank to see and hear about the work it undertakes from food bank volunteer Richard Bird.

Mr Bird said: “The support from all sources is very much welcomed and we are all pleased to be working with our local high school.”
