Lowestoft pupils spread some Christmas cheer

Pupils and staff at St Mary’s RC Primary School in Lowestoft have been spreading kindness and love throughout the community to families which are struggling with the cost of living crisis.

Head of School, Ewa Parker, said: “Our school set into action to support the local food bank and instead of ‘12 Days of Christmas’ we organised the ‘12 Crates for Christmas’. For 12 days, children, parents and school staff brought into school a variety of food or personal care products. Some families even remembered about animals and donated some animal food too!

“We are very grateful for all the efforts of our school community, as we know the donated food and items will spread a little more joy and love to those in need this Christmas. Our school’s Mini Vinnies and the staff have more ideas to support local community, so expect to hear more in the future from us.”
