Students collect food parcels

Nine enthusiastic members of St Mary’s Sixth and Rutherford made their way to Sainsbury’s in Crawley last Sunday to partner with Crawley Open House for their second food bank drive this year.

Armed with 700 leaflets designed by Year 12 student Rocco, the group encouraged shoppers to buy an extra item or two to donate to Crawley Open House to help with the huge number of food parcels they distribute to local people in need.

After a slow start, the donations began to flow in rapidly and after a couple of hours they had more than four trolleys worth of donations. The humility and sense of service demonstrated by all the students involved was nothing short of outstanding, and the Rutherford boys must be commended for achieving 30 seconds of fame as they commandeered the Sainsbury’s tannoy system to publicise their efforts.

Well done to all students who gave up their time to help with this.

In their continuing efforts to assist Crawley Open House, St Mary’s Sixth have just launched a ‘Clothing Drive’ where they are encouraging all pupils, whether day or boarders, and their families to donate any unwanted clothing, in a good condition, that can be donated to Crawley Open House, potentially changing the lives of the recipient. Bags can be found in Houses to place any clothing you no longer want after the Easter break.
