We were pleased this month to be able to help the children of Hutton CE Primary School to become the first in the South of England to complete the Archbishop of York’s Young Leader Challenge – a school based programme which aims to equip young people with skills to be a force for good in their local communities and encourages active citizenship from a young age.
Among various tasks that the children of years 5 and 6 faced was the significant challenge of collecting over 500 items of food to donate to their local foodbank charity. It was too much to ask parents and families alone to donate such a quantity of food, so the pupils used their initiative to reach out for donations from local businesses to help them meet their goal. Rapid ERP were delighted to be able to help such a good cause, with the pupils achieving their target on the penultimate day of term.
Congratulations to all at Hutton CE Primary School!
