Students at The King Alfred School Academy https://www.tkasa.org.uk in Highbridge, Somerset have been performing Christmas carols and songs via on YouTube as part of the charity spectacular.
Their musical performances have also been played on Sedgemoor FM.

Principal Dan Milford said: “Our students have been phenomenal in getting this project off the ground.
“They are using their immense musical talents and we are expecting another year of brilliant giving from the community to Foodbank.”
Dave Englefield of Sedgemoor FM said: “We are delighted to be supporting this innovative and heart-warming project.
“It was a privilege to witness part of the rehearsals and recordings of some of the songs, and to see the joy, enthusiasm and excitement on the students faces.
“They will not only get you in the festive mood while putting a smile on your face but will also help bring a little joy and happiness to the less fortunate members of our community.”
TKASA has had a brilliant few years with a raft of good news, £1.2 million of site improvements, excellent GCSE and A Level results, and a thriving Sixth Form.
