Charles Darwin Primary children have helped raise money to help a charity dealing with hunger and homelessness in Norwich.

The school has been fundraising for The Feed, a not-for-profit social enterprise, helping to fight poverty, hunger and reduce homelessness in Norwich.

The school raised more than three times their target of £400 by raising an incredible £1,535, with half of the proceeds going towards The Feed and half towards reading materials for the children at school.

Year 4 pupil Anaisha wrote a letter to encourage donations saying donations will help “homeless people and people who are struggling to feed their families during this difficult time of Covid-19”.

Jo Brown, Principal of Charles Darwin Primary and Nursery, said:

"I can’t express how pleased I am with what we managed to achieve. We set a target of £400 to raise over the last half term, and have raised £1,535! It is absolutely incredible and I am so proud of the staff, children and parents who have supported the school with this project."

Lucy Parish, Chief Executive Officer at The Feed, said:

“We are thrilled that we have been chosen as a fundraising cause by the Charles Darwin school. We work hard to address the issues of poverty, hunger and homelessness in Norwich and the amazing amount that they have raised will help us to continue to change lives.”
