Ross Educational Foundation help to provide food vouchers
Every year the Ross Educational Foundation supports local students by awarding grants for equipment, books and travel to help them achieve their educational goals.
Nick Richmond, Secretary of the Ross Educational Foundation, told Ross-on-line: “The current pandemic places strains on families that go way beyond the need for educational support, as we have seen across the country the issues with free school meals and the increased use of food banks.
“The Foundation has therefore decided to make the sum of £1,500 available in £30 food vouchers which can be reclaimed for food only (not drinks, clothes etc) from Morrisons.
“Kirintec Ltd., the company that resides in the Walter Scott School in Old Gloucester Road, which supports the Foundation, is very kindly adding £3,000 to the Foundation funds, so a total of 150 vouchers are being distributed via Ashfield Park, Brampton Abbotts/Bridstow and St Joseph’s Schools for the benefit of local Ross families.
“By the articles of the Foundation these vouchers may only be given for children who have a parent or parents resident in the town of Ross-on-Wye and/or the Parish of Ross Rural.”
