I AM writing this letter to say thank you to the pupils and staff of Red Hall School in Darlington.

Since the lockdown, they have been dropping off food parcels three times a week to all 34 flats in Festing Court.

Even an Easter egg at Easter and also thanks to a gentleman who paid for Easter lunch for us all.

The care, empathy and generosity is greatly appreciated.

I am a mum, nanna and great-nanna but haven’t seen my family with the way things are.

A girl called Cassie put a picture of a rainbow and letter in my food parcel.

The empathy shown by these people is worth any schooling they have.

Many thanks and good wishes.

Name supplied, Darlington.
