Luton Foodbank 'Stop Holiday Hunger' Appeal  23 July 2019

We held a non-uniform day on the last day of term to raise much needed funds for this amazing local charity! 

Three million children in the UK are at risk of going hungry during school holidays, and with Luton having some of the poorest wards in the country, it’s vital that Luton Foodbank is ready to prevent this in our town. 

We hope that the £288.84 we raised goes some way to help the charity continue their amazing work!
