A college is helping food banks during the coronavirus outbreak to help feed the vulnerable.

Staff at Nelson and Colne College Group have pulled together to help Pendle and Hyndburn food banks during the coronavirus outbreak.

With the College moving to online teaching and learning, donations of food from staff were combined with unused stock from the NCC Refectory to be passed to the Inspiring Grace food bank, covering Pendle and Burnley, and Maundy Grace in Accrington.

Rachel Cox, Nelson and Colne College Group’s Careers and Personal Development Manager, said: “I’m really pleased that the College Group family has shown its charitable side again and that we have been able to support food banks and help those in our community who need it most of all.

“While switching to online teaching and learning so quickly has been a real upheaval at College, being able to put essential food on the tables of the most vulnerable members of our society puts it all into perspective.”
