As part of their Duke of Edinburgh’s Silver Award, a group of our Y10 girls have set up a school food and hygiene bank in partnership with Micah Liverpool and we are delighted to say that the response from our students and their families has been fantastic and Paul O’Brien, Micah’s Executive Director said:
“I would like to thank all staff and pupils who recently donated to Micah Liverpool foodbank. Micah Liverpool is a social justice charity that has been set up by Liverpool Cathedral, Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King and St Bride’s Church to relieve Liverpool residents from social injustice and poverty. The food provided will help Micah Liverpool support over 200 people per week.”
The girls will be continuing to collect for the foodbank throughout the summer term and there will be a prize awarded to the form who donates the most. Sadly, foodbank use tends to rise over the summer as there are a great many children who rely on school meals as their main source of nutrition and as such are in real danger of going without during the long summer holidays. Our Y10’s are committed to doing as much as they can to help and so we are asking that parents and carers continue to support us with donations. The foodbank have informed us that while all donations are gratefully received, they are particularly short of the following products:
Mr McLaren, our DofE coordinator said “I’m incredibly proud of the drive and commitment shown by the girls to support such a worthwhile cause and as always, we are overwhelmed by the generosity of our students and their families and also our staff, in stepping up to the mark to help those less fortunate than themselves. I really hope that you will continue to support us in our efforts to help struggling Liverpool families in the lead up to the summer holidays.”
"Our two daughters have had the best start in life thanks to the caring, enthusiastic and hardworking staff of Archbishop Blanch School.

You inspire your pupils to achieve the academic heights of which they are capable in a happy, safe and vibrant environment."
