The students created the hampers and contributed the food before they were donated to Stowmarket Food Bank, which is organised and coordinated by Churches Together in the town. hea

The school held a non-uniform day to thank pupils for their contributions in making the hampers and headteacher Dave Lee-Allan along with representatives from the food bank judged the designs.
