Food bank Louth Larder benefited from a fantastic collection of food by socially aware Year 8 students at the Academy. The students put out a call to children at both sites to donate food for the charity at Christmas time.
Sophie Lee said: "We came up with the idea that we wanted to do something for charity. We put out an appeal to Upper and Lower sites and both students and staff contributed."
Martin Brown, Executive Principal of the Academy, said: "We are always proud when our students demonstrate their awareness of others who are less fortunate than themselves, and we were happy to help them to collect as much food as possible for a worthy cause."
Sam Gilbert, who collected the food on behalf of Louth Larder, thanked the staff and students for their donations and said it would make a real difference to the most vulnerable at this time of the year. She also wanted to remind everyone that the charity needs donations all year round so they can continue to help people in times of need.
