SIR THOMAS WHARTON ACADEMY BLBW VISIT SHEFFIELD FOODBANK – 20.4.23

Today our Better Learners Better Workers Ambassadors from Sir Thomas Wharton Academy visited Edlington Community Organisation.

The students heard from staff and volunteers about the amazing things they do to help the community. They also learned all about the food bank they run, and the people who use it.
It was interesting (yet sad) to hear that a lot of people using it are working families who just can’t make ends meet due to the cost of living crisis. The students came up with ideas to fundraise for the food bank and even helped to count stock ready for the market the centre run on a Friday.

Great for a local school to visit a local food bank. Thanks to all the team at ECO.
