Taradale High students show their concern

THS Baking for Aged Concern June 2020 1

Before the lockdown began, Taradale High School student leaders Matthew Adams and Jasmine Wynne wanted to do something to help the community, so they called Age Concern Napier to see what their needs were. Then the lockdown happened, but after the country moved to Alert Level 3, Matthew followed up with Age Concern to see if there was anything they could do to help.

“We wanted something to do during the lockdown that would be fun and also helpful,” says Matthew.

So the 10 students leaders from the school started baking for Age Concern. Volunteers from Age Concern bagged the baking up for its members, with a sticker on the bag that said “With love from Taradale High School students.”

Age Concern Napier Manager Morag Hill says “Older people who receive frozen meals also received a sweet treat from the Taradale High students. The students’ baking was also included in the emergency food parcels. It was a beautiful gesture from young people and it was nice for older people to know they were being thought of in the community. It really lifted their spirits.”

The love continues on - next term the student leadership of Taradale High are going to organise a mufti-day to raise funds to Age Concern Napier.
