Generous pupils will be presenting hundreds of tins of food to Alan Greaves’ widow Maureen on Friday as part of Alan’s Appeal.

Pupils from Ecclesfield School have been busy collecting donations for the food bank Mr Greaves set up with his wife in the weeks before his death.

The Star launched Alan’s Appeal to encourage people across the city to continue Alan’s good work in his community by making a donation to the project.

The school launched its Be Cantastic and I Can Help campaigns for pupils, who have all been asked to donate a tin of food.

The goodies will be presented to the food bank – St Saviour’s Community Project – for needy and vulnerable residents of High Green this Christmas.

School staff Emma Jane McNulty and Mark Richards came up with the idea.

Emma Jane said: “Alan’s Appeal was in the paper and it happened on our doorstep.

“As a school, we wanted to do something to help.”

Donations can be taken to The Star’s York Street offices in Sheffield city centre or the project on Mortomley Lane, High Green.
