A PRIMARY school in Malvern has been given a £200 boost to help struggling families as part of a Christmas Kindness Campaign.

St Matthias received the cash from Platform Housing Group for presents and food vouchers.

Platform’s Chief Operations Officer Marion Duffy said: “It has never been more important to provide Christmas kindness in our local communities as our customers, like most people, are struggling to manage their household budget due to the ongoing cost-of-living crisis.”

A total of £3,000 has been donated in total to Malvern organisations, including charities, community groups and schools, as part of Platform’s annual campaign.




Others have included Kempsey School, Malvern Foyer, The Cube, Malvern Cricket Club, Social Prescribers, Action for Children and Church Foodbank, Octagon Centre and Malvern Town Football Club.

Mrs Beale, St Matthias Primary School’s headteacher, said: ”We are so grateful to Platform Housing Group’s ‘Christmas Kindness Campaign’ for donating the shopping vouchers and thinking of St Matthias.


“Our families, like many others are struggling with the rising cost of living so any help is always appreciated but particularly at Christmas.

“I know the vouchers have made a difference to the children at our school.”
