One amazing thing the Hellesdon SHIELD team have been doing is thinking of ways to fundraise and support local charities who aid homeless or vulnerable people in Norwich.
We voted at the first SHIELD meeting to help the homeless in Norwich as they are a very visible presence in the city centre and many pupils at our school feel concern for them, particularly in the colder months.
Recently, we donated backpacks and sleeping bags (kindly provided by the Drama department, site management and our Duke of Edinburgh team!) to the Peoples’ Picnic: a local charity who run a scheme to recycle un-used food from major supermarkets in the area to donate to those in need.
Our contact Karen from The Peoples’ Picnic was very pleased with our donation!
You can find out more about The Peoples’ Picnic on their Facebook page “The Peoples’ Picnic“.
