A TEACHER has been baking delicious treats for a street cafe that feeds the homeless during lockdown.

Kirsty Johnson - with the help of daughter Ellie - made fairy cakes, meringues and flapjacks - and delivered 52 food parcels to Worcester Street Café.

Mrs Johnson, who works at Christopher Whitehead Language College, started baking at home to continue to provide the support the St John's school usually offers to the street cafe while the school is temporarily shut to all but the children of key workers.

Until the closure, pupils had been cooking for the street cafe every Tuesday for the past 18 months.

Christopher Whitehead Language College has also been collecting food donations from staff, students and parents and taking it on a weekly basis to Worcester Foodbank, which has seen a dramatic rise in referrals during the lockdown period.

Anyone able to provide donations of tins can leave them at the foyer at the school's Bromwich Road entrance.
