On Wednesday, we are having our Christmas meal and Christmas jumper day.
This is a special occasion when invited guests from our community join the children for a wonderful celebration of Christmas and its core messages: sharing and giving.
In that vein, this year I am asking that children - instead of a cash donation to accompany their Christmas jumper - bring in a donation to school for Sunderland Foodbank. This would include items - non-perishable food - such as tinned goods, pasta, tea, coffee could make a significant difference to someone else's life, in our city, this Christmas. Thank you.
