It’s been wet, drizzly, cold, but our super team delivered 67 food parcels to the homes of 5 self-isolating Manorfield Primary School classes on the last day of term!

Manorfield Primary School was amongst my first batch of schools twenty years ago.

Poverty is still rife amongst the student population. The neighbourhood may be undergoing massive regeneration but the socio-economic divide is plain and clear.

The school sits in the middle of Canary Wharf and Aberfeldy Village. Children have dreams to live and work in both locations, to rise up and grasp the opportunities on offer.

I’ve been fortunate to see a few make it thanks to their schools and support groups like GoodGym watching their back.

I know the hunger to succeed is far greater and there will be a few amongst the recipients today who will do us proud in the future.

Well done team!
