Students at Newminster Middle School were tasked with decorating a shopping trolley to encourage more people to donate to the Wansbeck Valley Food Bank. The trolley is now located in the Iceland food shop in Morpeth and is attracting much attention from customers.
Year 8 students, who are doing their Bronze Arts Award, coordinated the efforts which saw many pupils, from all year groups, drawing and painting pictures of food items with faces. These were laminated and tied to the sides of the trolley along with the written names of items which are good to donate such as jars, tins, long life milk, custard, pasta and rice.
We hope the efforts increase donations!
‘Well done and thank you to the team of students at Newminster who made this happen. It will make a big difference!’ – Richard Nash from Wansbeck Valley Food Bank
