The TEMA community raises £3,000 to fund the TEMA foodbank.

One week’s emergency food ready to be given to families at TEMA

The TEMA foodbank has been supporting families since the first lockdown in Spring last year. Following the announcement of a second lockdown, the TEMA community quickly rallied to raise an additional £3,000 to fund the foodbank for the next term.

In term one, TEMA staff cycled 100km to raise £4,000 for the foodbank which has helped to support over 100 families since September. Our new funding will ensure that the foodbank can now run until the end of this academic year. TEMA has also collaborated with MU Foundation and Fareshare on their Holiday Hunger projects which provided 100 students with fresh cooked meals over the October half term and Christmas holidays.

Our recent fundraising efforts have reached over £3,000 to go towards the school foodbank. I am so proud of the community and staff at TEMA who are extremely committed to the wellbeing and care of our young people and their families.
