A student-led foodbank project has been launched by Hall Cross Academy Philosophy and Ethics Department this autumn. Year 11 students Thomas Stafford and Brock Rogers led the appeal supported by Ali Comak, Samuel Hodgkinson, Maya Stewart, Annya Pabial, Vanessa Krol and Matthew Peers. An enormous array of parcels was delivered to the Christ Church Foodbank and students witnessed it in action. Mark Snellson of Christ Church Foodbank said that the donation from Hall Cross Academy was the largest received to date.
