The King Alfred School – An Academy (TKASA) has set up a food bank scheme to help those less fortunate this Christmas.

The academy, in Burnham Road, put boxes in each tutor group’s room to encourage students to donate food and toiletries to help people in need.

Donations were made to the Highbridge Area Foodbank on Friday and the academy’s students and staff were encouraged to gift plentifully.

The scheme’s organiser and associate assistant head at TKASA, Baylea Charles, said: “It is an amazing project which involves both staff and students coming together to help support people who need it this Christmas.”

The Priory Learning Trust (PLT), which runs the Highbridge academy, encourages its students to help people in need by donating to charities on a regular basis.
