2015 Hope Campaign Collects Two Tons of Food

O Castro British School 2015 Hope Campaign ended with an unprecedented success, having collected more than two tons of food, 500 kg more than in 2014. The food will be shared among families in need thanks to several charities. This initiative, organised by the school PTA in cooperation with the entire educational community, counted, once again, on the solidarity of our students, from Nursery to Year 9. Donations started last 23rd November. Non-perishable food stands out among the supplies donated. Cereal, biscuits, milk, canned food, pasta, legumes, as well as Christmas sweets, will be delivered in the coming days to: Food Bank of Vigo, Abriendo Caminos Charity, Hogar San José and to the parishes of Mos and Salceda de Caselas, in order to comply with the spirit of the “Help One Person Eat” campaign. In addition, O Castro British School PTA will also deliver the school supplies collected in the course of this campaign. Pencils, markers and notebooks, among other supplies, have been donated in order to minimise the economic effort that the school year implies for many families.
