Harvest Food Drive - Friday 17th October


We are all very excited about our Harvest food drive tomorrow. We are asking everyone to bring in an item of long life food to donate to the local Trussell foodbank. Here is some information about the work that the Trussell Trust does.

Mission and Vision
The Trussell Trust works to empower local communities to combat poverty and exclusion in the UK. The trust works with the people throughout the community, providing practical help through sustainable projects and enabling each person to realise that they are valued. The vision for the trust is to build communities where people of all backgrounds are included and have the opportunity to live in dignity with hope for the future.

People like to donate food because they know it is all going directly where it is needed, but supporting running costs is probably not so appealing. Without financial backing, the work the work of the foodbank is doing within the community is put under threat. If you feel that you would be able to support the foodbank financially please see Mrs Nicholls who can provide you with a leaflet.

As we collecting food that we can grow in the garden or find on the farm we are wearing our wellies to school for the day. Because this is the footwear we would wear if we were outside harvesting the food.

Please support the local community and scare hunger away for good.
