Latymer Community doubles its donations to Trussell Trust Foodbank

Our thanks go to students in 10EPH who have organised the most successful collection for the Trussell Trust Foodbank the School has ever run. 

With the help of their form tutor, Miss E Harvey, the students encouraged pupils and their families across the Prep and Upper Schools, to bring in donations of tinned and dried foods, for the Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank. 

The Latymer Community responded with an overwhelming number of donations – over 2,000 –  double the amount donated last year!

As in previous years, items on the wish list included tinned fruit and vegetables, long-life juice, UHT milk, tinned rice pudding, tinned meat, non-refrigerated sponge pudding and jars of pasta sauce.

Phil Storey, Chief Executive of the Trussell Trust said: “Thank you so much to everyone at Latymer Upper and Prep Schools! This is an incredible amount and will make such a difference! The Hammersmith & Fulham Foodbank relies on goodwill to support over 28,000 men, women and children in the area. More than 90% of the food we distribute is donated by the public – which is why your food donations are absolutely vital. It means we can give everyone referred to us a balanced and nutritious three day supply of food. We don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry which is why we are working to combat poverty and hunger across the UK and your support is so key to this.”
