Students Support Local Food Bank At Christmas

Selby College students are giving back to those who need it most this Christmas, with numerous donations made to Selby & District Food Bank.

As part of a team building module, Level 3 Business students from the College split into two teams and competed to try and arrange the biggest collection for the food bank. Over 12 large boxes of items were donated which included tinned meats and fruits, juices, toiletries and lifelong products. Nigel Currey, Chairman of Trustees at Selby & District Food Bank, visited the College to collect the donation and personally thank the students for their generosity. Nigel commented:

“We’re incredibly grateful to the students for their generous donation which helps support the vital work that we do at Selby & District Food Bank."

"Our work goes beyond putting food on peoples’ tables, we offer wrap-around support including financial help to try and help them out of difficult situations. We hope that this means that the hundreds of people we’ve helped this year alone now won’t need to rely on food banks to feed their families.”

Level 3 Business student, Deni Chivvu, said:

“When our tutor Heidi told us about the project, we were excited to get started and to do something which would make a difference this Christmas."

"We had a great response from friends and family who wanted to help and make sure that we could make a generous donation. The aim of the assignment was to teach us how to effectively work in teams, but it has done much more than that – it has taught us how fortunate we are and how we can help those less fortunate than us.”

As part of a Christmas fundraiser, Sport and Public Service students from the College also arranged a charitable collection for Selby & District Food Bank.
