Staff and students at St Brendan’s Sixth Form College have put together over 70 festive hampers to support families with young children and teenagers, the elderly, homeless and housebound across Bristol this Christmas.
This year the Brislington College has worked in conjunction with The St Vincent de Paul Society, Youth Moves and a local primary school to ensure families who have very little, enjoy a special surprise.
Hampers were filled with food, treats, toys, games and clothes and were made specifically with each family in mind and delivered to doors across Bristol.
Foodbank donations were also delivered to Carpenter’s Food Bank and St Nicholas of Tolentino Food Bank (St Nick’s Bread).
Marian Curran, Principal at St Brendan’s Sixth Form College, said “The College is delighted to be able to support the local community through the hamper project. This is the 29th year that we have run this project and once again I am very proud of the St Brendan’s community (the students, teachers and support staff), who have managed to pull together incredibly generous hampers which will hopefully make Christmas special for those who receive them.”
