COMMUNITY-MINDED students collected a swathe of food donations for families in crisis.
The Clevedon School pupils organised a collection for the town’s foodbank, which resulted in 86.4kg of groceries being donated, enough to feed four families for three days.
One tutor group in Valley House worked as a team and collected more than 40 items.
The donations will now be given to the foodbank which gives out parcels of food to families and individuals in need.
Clevedon Foodbank steering group chairman Paul Gale said: “It is fantastic to see the whole school supporting our charity.

“The numbers of local people using the foodbank has increased by 50 per cent this year and continues to rise. 70 per cent of the people we see only come once and they are ordinary families struggling to make ends meet during this current economic crisis in our country.”
