Food Bank Support
If you would like to receive a weekly food parcel provided through Brighouse Food Bank, please get in touch with school. If you will require this support over the summer holidays, please notify school by Friday 10th July. You will need to collect the parcel from Brighouse Food Bank on a Friday at 12 noon. This is opposite Wilko’s next to the Methodist Church. Look for a green door. Families will only be able to collect a food parcel if one has been ordered through school. There will be no deliveries available. Food parcels will be ordered for the whole summer holidays. Get in touch for more details.
