Lenten Appeal

Easter Eggs rolled in for this year’s Lenten Appeal, in aid of Cherry Hinton Food Hub and Abbey Food Hub.

The School worked with the two community groups to help Cambridge residents in need over the Easter break. The Houses had collections of food and toiletries for Cherry Hinton Hub, while Easter Eggs were collected for Abbey People.

On Thursday 25 March, 85 Easter Eggs were delivered to the Abbey Food Hub. These were delivered to families in need along with ‘feed-a-family’ boxes including fresh fruit and veg, funded by a Community Fund grant. Abbey Food Hub is organised by Abbey People, a community group working to enrich the lives of those in Abbey, the city’s most deprived area, who set up the food hub in spring 2020 as a response to the Covid crisis.

Meanwhile, donations of fresh and dried foods, toiletries and plenty of Easter treats were also delivered to Cherry Hinton Food Hub. Each House also had a collection for non-uniform day, which will go towards their chosen Lenten Appeal charity.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to helping make Easter a little bit sweeter for Cambridge families. Cambridge was already the UK’s most unequal city, before the Covid-19 crisis exacerbated existing inequalities.
