Melland and Marcus Rashford deliver care packages to Manchester’s homeless

Melland students and staff have been taking part in an initiative to help the homeless, delivering care packages to those in need as part of a national campaign.

‘Care and Share’ invites groups of people to support the homeless all over the UK and Melland was delighted to get involved, through the school’s work with The Leonard Cheshire Organisation towards a City and Guilds Certification in Building Communities.

They teamed up with Manchester United player Marcus Rashford for his ‘In the Box’ project and each pupil prepared a care box containing essential items to help combat the winter conditions. They also wrote messages of goodwill to include in the parcels.

Granada Reports filmed the work, which saw the Melland students develop a real understanding of the community and the importance of helping others, while working on their key skills of teamwork, communication and gaining confidence.

A fantastic campaign – our Trust is very proud of all involved.
