PSYCHOLOGY students at King’s Ely Sixth Form have donated 100 Easter Eggs to Ely Foodbank – a charitable organisation that donates emergency food to people in crisis.
For each egg donated, Head of Psychology, Sean Quinn, and his wife matched them.
“As well as collecting eggs for the bank, the aim of the exercise was to show the students the mechanisms of social change, which are consistency, commitment, flexibility, relevance and snowballing,” said Sean.
“I was really pleased that most of the students donated at least one egg, some even donating their own eggs, meaning that a lot of families in need would have received something nice this Easter.”
The Trussell Trust foodbank network works in partnership with local churches and organisations to bring foodbanks to communities across the UK. There are now over 275 foodbanks in the network. <
