Students at Thurston Community College created a Band Aid style video to help collect food items for a charity.

The video was produced by Year 13 students George Tuvey and Reuben Cone to inspire their peers to give to the Sixth Form’s collection in aid of the Crack On Foundation’s Christmas Food Appeal.

The initiative was organised by Maddie Byford and Helena Whitelock, who run the Sixth Form’s charity committee.

Maddie said: “We chose the food appeal because it felt a bit more personal than donating money.”

The Crack On Foundation delivers help, support, coaching and mentoring predominantly to those aged under 25.

Thurston Community College’s Sixth Form is now based in Beyton.
