‘Aiming Higher’


We are very excited to be able to share that we have partnered up with the 'Bread and Butter Thing' which is a mobile food club aiming to enable people to eat more healthily, enjoy a wider variety of food and afford to feed their families.  We know how stretched everyone's money is right now and that all families will be feeling the impact of increasing food and fuel costs, amongst other financial worries.


The Bread and Butter Thing offers access to weekly groceries at a fraction of high street prices and our hub will be opening on Thursday 7th July.


It is open to all our families, our school staff and the local community and all you need to do is sign up following the steps on page 1 of the attached leaflet.  


Can You Help?

In order to make this work successfully, we are also looking for amazing volunteers who would be willing to give up some time on Thursdays (between 11:30 and 3pm on a rota basis) to help us receive the delivery and pack up to 80 sets of grocery bags.  Some of our fantastic school staff and governors have already signed up to help but we really need a team of about 20 people to make it happen.  


If you would like to volunteer, or would like some more information before you do, please email and myself or Mrs Latimer will be in touch with you directly.  Volunteers will undertake a training session on 30th June and will be able to take home a set of groceries as a thank you.  We will also feed and water you throughout the session!
