Pupils at Claires Court School might be locked down at home but one of them had plenty of 'food for thought'.

Senior pupil Luisa Matton, 14, at the school in College Avenue, Maidenhead was excused from digital learning for an afternoon to volunteer at the Maidenhead Foodshare.

The Foodshare is dedicated to helping individuals and families in need - making sure they get a minimum of three days worth of nutrition.

Year 10 pupil Luisa and her family have been volunteering there for the past six months. With the sudden rise in demand, Luisa was asked to come back.

She said: "I really enjoyed volunteering because I felt like I was doing some good by helping people who are less fortunate in our town. It is even more important to help during these difficult times and I wanted to do something to contribute.”

While practising social distance measures and wearing personal protective equipment, Luisa spent her time by helping to sort and stack donations ready to be packed into food parcels, as well as marking each donation with ‘use by’ dates.
