Families in need will receive food hampers this Christmas thanks to the generosity of teachers.

Catton Grove Primary School on Weston Road, Norwich, has put together 73 festive food hampers which will be given out to families in the local community.

The donations came from staff at the school, £1,000 from the Greggs Foundation, set up to help disadvantaged people across different communities, and a food donation from Asda.

Ann-Marie Lacey, deputy headteacher of Catton Grove Primary School, said: “We have many families who will welcome this token of goodwill during the Christmas season.

“These are unprecedented times for everyone and we have worked closely with the Catton Grove community during this challenging year.”
