Current and former students volunteer at the Food Bank

24 April 2020

Dan and Jack Perrin have been out in the local community volunteering for Tameside South and Longdendale Food Bank. 

Dan studies Maths, Further Maths and Physics at Ashton Sixth Form College as part of the XL programme. 

Jack studied at the college from 2016-2018 as part of the XL programme. He achieved A*A*A*A* in Maths, Further Maths, Physics and the EPQ. He then went on to study Mathematics at the University of Durham.

During the coronavirus crisis, both Dan and Jack have been using their time to help those in need. They have been volunteering for the Trussell Trust Food Banks which operate throughout Tameside. In particular, they have been working with the South and Longdendale Food Bank by assisting their doorstop donations scheme. Members of the community leave donations our on their doorstop and they managed to collect 90 meals in total which will go to those in need throughout the area. 

Food Banks are in need of donations now more than ever. If you are able to donate, please give to your local food banks to help those who need it most.
