PUPILS at Buxton Junior School have helped support a charity which provides emergency food parcels to people who are homeless or in crisis.

The school nominated High Peak Nightstop as its charity of choice over the harvest festival period.

Headteacher Cecilia Minter said: “Every year we support a local charity and we decided this year we wanted to support High Peak Nightstop.

“The children were asked to bring in a donation as part of our harvest festival celebrations.

As a school, we are keen to support members of the local community.”

Cath Sterndale, Project Co-ordinator for High Peak Nightstop, added: “Donations such as these are absolutely crucial because this means we can provide fresh foods such as milk, bread and vegetables to complement the donated non-perishable food items.”
