  • JOG Festive Food Parcel Appeal

    Published 05/12/23

    We are pleased to launch the ‘JOG Festive Food Parcel’ appeal. We have been working with Storehouse – the Trowbridge foodbank – to create a special food parcel shopping list. It contains essential items along with some nice-to-haves. Across the school, tutor groups will build the same food parcel through the generous support of our families. In total, each parcel would cost around £22.00. Once delivered at the end of term, we hope a large number of JOG Festive Food Parcels can be handed directly to people who visit the foodbank over the Christmas period.
