2,000 treat bags distributed for teachers

The hard-working teachers received the goody bags from KingsGate Community Church as a thank you for their "ongoing dedication and commitment". 

The bags currently being distributed include a coffee mug, sachets of hot chocolate, tea and coffee, pen, post-it notes, bar of soap, mini shower gel, hand cream, chocolate, biscuits and a thank you note from the church.

To distribute the packs, members of the church who teach in local schools were given a thank you bag, along with some for their work colleagues.

A spokesperson for KingsGate said: "We know that school staff across our city have been working hard to adapt to changing circumstances to continue providing safe environments and ongoing education and support for children and young people throughout the pandemic.

"We also know it’s been a really difficult year for schools and that the most recent lockdown presented unique challenges as teachers and support staff moved provision for pupils online whilst continuing to teach vulnerable children and the children of frontline workers in the classroom.

"To honour and thank school staff, we’re giving away 2,000 thank you packs to teachers, support staff and school leaders in the local Peterborough area. These will include a variety of treats to say a massive thank you for all their hard work, and to let them know we’re thinking of them and praying for them as they navigate the ongoing challenges and support children and young people."

The teachers have been recognised for their hard work throughout the pandemic, and it comes shortly after healthcare workers also received treat bags across the city.
