  • Thursday 16 December 2021 An Act of Amazing Kindness Some of our children have been really moved by the needs of others in their community. Reggie and Summer wanted to Feed the World this Christmas so they worked with their friends and family to raise money for the local foodbank. They then went to Asda with their Mum and chose all sorts of things that they felt would help others over the Christmas period. Everything that went in the trolley was carefully thought about and researched, from shower gel to cereal and Smarties. We took the food to the food bank at the Salvation Army, just off Deptford High Street. This is a wonderful act of kindness and all came from the ideas of the children themselves. We are so proud of you.
