A Renfrewshire high school's pupils and staff have gone above and beyond for people struggling over the winter months.

St Benedict's High School, in Linwood, collected over 50 bags worth of non-perishable foods that will be distributed to food banks across Glasgow. 

Pupils were encouraged to donate any items if they could spare them.

This is why the school took part in the Glasgow Times' Bank on Us campaign which aimed to help families access food banks over the festive period.

Ray McPhee, faculty head of science and the facilitator for the school's Bank on Us appeal praised the school's community for getting involved and said it was a delight to see everyone working together.

Parents and families of the pupils and staff also got involved as the school were "determined to help" as many people as they could over the festive season.

Glasgow Times:

Alan Taylor, headteacher at the school, said: "I am very proud of our pupils.

"Their contributions to this cause had been tremendous.

"As a school, we encourage our pupils to help others in need and they are always enthusiastic in their response.

"They know a little help from a lot of people can make a huge difference. Because of them some people will have been happier at Christmas."
