Rupert School children decided to spend their pocket money on a Easter egg treat for children less fortunate than themselves following an assembly by Sam Brewster at Trinity at Four earlier in the school term.
School Council pupils took an incredible 108 Easter eggs to the NOMAD foodbank based at d:two yesterday morning (Thursday). Sarah Lane from Nomad who run the food bank told the children that they have over 70 children on their books and so they will all get an Easter egg and the remaining eggs will be go to some of the elderly in the community.
Headteacher of Rupert House, Mr Armitage said “I am very grateful to all the Rupert House families that have donated Easter eggs over the past couple of weeks, and I’m extremely proud of those children who bought them with their own pocket money, in order to help children less fortunate than themselves. The school hopes that these chocolate treats will help brighten a up some families’ Easter this year”.
Tim Prior from Nomad said, “This Easter time we are really pleased to be able to give out over 100 Easter eggs to many of the young people and families that Nomad support. A huge thank you to everyone at Rupert House who kindly donated them and made this possible.”
