Churchfield makes a difference
We were delighted to hear a well-deserved shout out to Churchfield Primary School on BBC Radio London as part of the broadcaster’s national Make a Difference campaign.
Staff at the school have been helping to deliver food to vulnerable families up to three times a week throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. This helps to ensure that people who are shielding, isolated or struggling to find or pay for food are getting these vital deliveries.
Elliott Plumb, Assistant Headteacher, explains: “The food comes from a number of charities in the area and we are out delivering it throughout the week and at the weekend too. Food is donated from lots of different places, from McDonalds to The Ivy restaurants.
“This means that our vulnerable families are receiving an amazing array of cooked meals and essential products that they would not have otherwise been able to get.”
The BBC Make a Difference campaign was launched to share details of help available from organisations and individuals who are working hard to support people in their communities. Bulletins are announced on local radio stations daily.
