    Harvest Donations for Foodbank

    Dear Parents and Carers,

    As we officially enter autumn, we know life is still proving to be a little difficult for some of us.
    For harvest this year, we would like to support Wythenshawe Foodbank. This is a charity very close to Benchill Primary and our community.

    None of us know when we may need the support of the foodbank so we are asking our families to give a helping hand and donate an item of food for our ‘Harvest Foodbank Collection’.

    Suggested items and those they are currently in need of include:

     Long life milk
     Long life juice/ squash
     Instant mash potato (SMASH)
     Pot noodles
     Packets of biscuits/ Snack bars
     Toiletries – shampoo/ conditioner/ deodorant (men’s & women’s)/ toothpaste/ mouthwash

    Other items that we know they always need include:
     Feminine hygiene products
     Baby wipes and nappies
     The above items can only be given to families when they are available.

    All food will be gratefully received, as long as the food is packaged and in date. Fresh items will not last and will be unable to be donated.

    If you would like to contribute, please send donations into school between Monday 4th October and Wednesday 6th October. All donations will be taken on Thursday 7th October.

    Items can be brought into school with your child and given to their class teacher.

    Thank you, in advance, for all you support.

    Miss Holt
    Head of School
