Southport Schools Food Support

It has been an incredible few days - we are deeply humbled by the love and generosity that has poured in by way of donations for the Food Support Service.  These acts of kindness have been made from as far away as Australia, which is also experiencing the effects of the pandemic.  Together, we will get through this. 

You can still see, if you scroll down, the video that Alex posted, challenging our fundraisers to hit a total of £1000 by Tuesday.  The reward, he promised, was that Mr Parry (our Headteacher) would shave off his hair.

We launched the Go Fund Me appeal on Friday afternoon and instantly, the donations began to flood in.  Within 6 hours, you had surpassed the £1000 mark and Mr Parry began to sharpen the blades on his clippers.  The following morning, he shared this image and short video message.

Mr Parry is always immaculately presented and this was quite a challenge for him.  We continue to receive donations and to date, the total in in excess of £3300.  Alex will be back very soon with a new challenge/target for our fundraising community.  

We are already working hard behind the scenes and have partnered with Morrison's, who have been incredibly supportive of this effort.  They will be providing food supplies through their bulk purchasing team and with them, we are making plans for the food to be purchased, boxed and distributed to the families who need it most.  

Please keep donating, sharing the link to others and spreading the word about the Southport Schools Food Support service.  By raising enough money, we can ensure that the children in the town will have some food to eat each day.


Southport Schools Food Support

You know that we are always looking to help where and whenever we can and our latest effort, as part of the local Southport community, is to raise money to create food parcels that can be distributed to families in Southport that are the most in need - by working in partnership with a number of local schools and suppliers. We have set up a Go Fund Me page which all donations can be made is really simple to do.  There is a link at the top of this page.

Your donation will be used to purchase a range of food and essential products that will then be delivered directly to these families.

Even a small donation could help reach the fundraising goal. And if you can't make a donation, it would be great if you could share the fundraiser to help spread the word.  Have a quick look at the video that Alex, our Head Boy has made above.

Thanks for taking a look!
