Treviglas hosted a Christmas Jumper Day on Thursday 14th December to benefit a local charity as part of the college’s annual Charity Week.
Newquay Foodbank provides emergency food parcels to people experiencing emotional or financial crisis. Non-perishable, in date food is donated through churches, schools and food collection points. Frontline care professionals such as the Children’s Centre, Schools, Police, CAB and the Red Cross identify people in need of food supplies and issue a voucher. The recipient then takes the voucher to one of the food bank sessions and receives a food parcel. Each food parcel provides 3 meals a day for 3 days plus puddings, tea or coffee, milk and biscuits. The parcel includes non-perishable tinned and packet foods plus fresh fruit, vegetables and a loaf of bread.
The organisers of the event were astounded by the good will gestures brought in by the staff and students. It seems that wearing Christmas jumpers brings out fantastic Christmas spirit and the joy of giving.

Sophie Vale, Year 13 student and part of the Head Student team said, “It is good that the school worked hard to bring us all together to make sure people could have a good Christmas.”
