During term time we have a weekly Foodbank collection for York Foodbank. This is at the end of the school day on a Wednesday, and the beginning of the school day on a Thursday. The collection is at the front of the school building.
Citizens Advice York contacted us to ask us to help spread the information that they are still open for telephone advice. Please see their poster below for more information.
On May 4th we usually run our Star Wars marathon at Fishergate Primary School with all the children and staff involved – and often many parents and governors! We have had to postpone this year’s event, but Mrs Wilson is planning to run past as many Early Years children’s homes as possible to give them a (socially distanced!) wave.
Foodbanks in the UK are under more pressure than ever in the current situation; York alone has seen a 400% increase in use since lockdown began.

The York Civic Youth Choir have once again been invited by St Leonard’s Hospice to perform for them at one of their fundraising events. “Lights on the Lake” in Rowntree Park will take place on Wednesday 20th March at 6.30pm. This is a new event for 2019, there will be a short service (similar to “Light up a Life” at Christmas) followed by lanterns being floated on the Lake in Rowntree Park.
The plan is to light the way to the lake with a lantern procession to the lake and the choir have been invited to lead the procession with lanterns and then sing some songs before lanterns are floated. We would love for as many of the members of the choir old and new to be involved with this as it promises to be a really magical event.
We will be having ONE rehearsal only on Saturday 16th March from 10am-3:30pm at St Aelred’s School, including an informal performance for parents and family at 3:15pm. Please sign up below to take part.
The choir did a splendid job of entertaining shoppers in York City Centre this afternoon, despite the weather! Thanks also to all the adult helpers who braved the rather wintry conditions with us. The money raised will help to fund…
