Over the last few weeks, children and staff at Green Top have demonstrated how Christmas is not only a time for receiving but also for giving, as they have donated food and toiletries to the ‘Pay It Forward Advent’ in aid of the Thorne Community Foodbank.
Children in Year 6 then gave their time to support the volunteers at the Food bank in giving out bags. Paul Brian even sang a song to get everyone in a Christmas mood.
Support of the Food bank will continue into the new year, with groups of Year 6 children going down every week to help.
