Packers bag hundreds of pounds for school trip

Published on 21/05/19

Community-spirited children from Stradbroke Primary Academy gave up their Sunday to help shoppers with their packing and raised over £300 for a school trip.

Twelve Year 6 pupils worked in two-hour shifts at the checkouts of Morrisons in Gorleston on Sunday, May 19.

Grateful customers donated £340 which will go towards the Year 6 residential trip later this term.

The session was arranged by teaching assistant Eunice Ortega and supported by school staff and a parent volunteer.

Principal Tanya Blake said: “The pupils received lots of comments about how smart and polite they were.

“We are very proud of them being fantastic ambassadors within our community.”
