A network of college campuses has relaunched its food bank fundraiser in the run-up to Christmas.
London South East Colleges is working with other colleges nationally to collect 30,000 items for local food banks, with the aim of reaching a £12,000 target.
Collection bins for food and other non-food donations will be placed across the college’s campuses, giving staff and students the opportunity to support the campaign.
The college will also be publishing regular lists of the most needed items from the local food banks, to make sure donations are as helpful as possible.
For anyone wanting to donate virtually, the college has a national fundraising platform on Just Giving here.
Funds from this will be divided up between all the colleges involved and distributed to their local food banks.
For more information about #FestiveFEFoodbankFriday email Andrew Cox on [email protected].

Former Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has encouraged everyone in the country who can afford to do so to buy a newspaper, and told the Downing Street press briefing recently: “A free country needs a free press, and the newspapers of our country are under significant financial pressure”.
So if you have enjoyed reading this story, and if you can afford to do so, we would be so grateful if you can buy our newspaper or make a donation, which will allow us to continue to bring stories like this one to you both in print and online.
