Cressex Community School Eco Club Wins Praise From Mayor

Mayor of High Wycombe, Councillor Mohammed Hanif, was full of praise for Cressex Community School Eco Club on a recent visit to the school.  In particular, he was delighted to see how a three way collaboration between the school, ASDA and One Can Hope had worked so effectively to help people in need.

Working with ASDA’s Community Colleague, Claire Poole, who has provided weekly support and much needed funds, students and staff have been able to grow a wide range of fruit and vegetables.  Pupils have learnt valuable horticultural skills and, just as importantly, have seen how their efforts have helped those in the community who are less fortunate than themselves. This is because all produce from the Eco Club is donated to One Can Hope, a local charity that provides a food bank as well as teaching the community about preparing a healthy meal from fresh produce to a budget.

Cressex School Eco Club would like to take this opportunity to thank its partners in this important work:-

  • ASDA
  • One Can Hope
  • Waitrose, Thame
  • Booker Garden Centre
  • AIP Catering
  • Johnson and Johnson

The Eco Club meets every Tuesday and Friday lunchtimes and is open to students from all year groups. Come along and muck in as, even though winter is drawing closer, there is still plenty to do!
