In the run up to Christmas, students and staff at Manor Croft will be donating food, toiletries and other goods to Fusion Food Bank which is located in Dewsbury Town Centre.
A Food Bank is a place where food is donated and distributed to people in the local community who need it most. In the UK many people go hungry and struggle to feed their families for many different reasons. The rising cost of living, combined with wage freezes, job losses and relationship breakdowns means that many people are now living below the poverty line and are unable to put food on the table. This has led to the increasing need for food banks.
At Manor Croft, we are extremely passionate about helping our local community and we believe that coming up to the festive period is the right moment for all students to come together and help a deserving cause.

- Tinned Meat or Vegetarian meal
- Tinned Soup
- Beans or Spaghetti
- Pasta or Rice
- Tinned or Fresh Fruit
- Tinned or fresh vegetables.
