Papplewick School, Windsor Road, Ascot.   

Papplewick's harvest collection this year was donated to the Tressell Trust.  Due to the overwhelming generosity of the Papplewick community a record 343 kgs of goods ranging from foodstuffs, toiletries, household items, feminine items and baby supplies were donated. A week long appeal was organised by Mrs Simone Alder, Senior House Parent who together with a team of boys sorted the items which were taken to the Kerith Centre (Bracknell Food Bank) for the Stop the Hunger campaign.

Headmaster Tom Bunbury said " The Tressell Trust is a wonderful organisation which has worked with nutritionists to develop food parcels that contain sufficient nutrition for adults and children for at least 3 days of healthy balanced meals both for individuals and families, and we were delighted to be able support this very worthy cause."
