Pupils from Castle Manor Academy and Place Farm Primary Academy have helped out at Haverhill Foodbank in Suffolk. It's given out 436 boxes of food since April. Organisers say 43% of applications for food boxes are from people on benefits but working families are asking for help too.

Over the weekend, the UK's national foodbank charity The Trussell Trust teamed up with Tesco, meaning foodbanks across the country, including Haverhill, benefited massively from donations. It was there, along with donations from harvest festivals and churches, that the children were helping with.
