In the face of soaring and unbudgeted food price rises during 2016/17 we launched a drought appeal to raise additional funds for our lunch programme so that it could continue undisrupted during through this challenging period.
The appeal raised more than £2,000 from nearly 50 donors, including many donating for the first time to the charity. All these funds have gone towards meeting the costs of our feeding programme, however shortly after launching the appeal we did have to take the difficult decision to reduce portion sizes of each meal so that we could continue to deliver a daily meal to every pupil and still live within our means.
