GENEROUS pupils at an Evesham school have donated much-needed food to the town’s foodbank as part of their Harvest Festival.
St Andrew’s CE School in Hampton recently handed over tinned, packet and fresh food to the Caring Hands Food Bank at the Vale of Evesham Christian Centre.
Following a wonderful Harvest service at school, where all the children learnt about why we celebrate Harvest, the school ambassadors, along with headteacher Andrea Bailey, gave the food that had been generously donated by the pupils’ family and friends to Diane Bennett from Caring Hands.
At the service, Diane also explained to the pupils how the donations really do make a difference to those who need support from the food bank.
“I am absolutely blown away by everyone’s generosity; the amount of donations is phenomenal,” Diane said.
“Thank you so much to all the children and their parents and carers for their continued support.
The non-perishable food will be used in the food bank and the fresh produce will be used in the drop-in diner where we provide meals for people in need in our community.”
