Foodbank Appeal - for full details please see the attached letter (Parents Tab). The demand for food has increased dramatically which has had an impact on what the Foodbank can provide owing to a dramatic fall off of public donations.  If you are able to support with monetary donation please see their website: www.letchworth.foodbank.org.uk.
