St Andrew's pupils donate much-needed food to the town's foodbank

Evesham Editorial 9th Oct, 2017   0

KIND-hearted 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 Harvest Service at St Andrew’s Church, the School Ambassadors, along with the 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 foodbank.




Diane said: “Thank you so much to all the children and their parents and carers for their continued support and generosity. The food will be used in the food bank and the fresh produce will be used in the drop-in diner where we provide meals twice-weekly for people in need in our community.”

Harriet Batchelor, a Year 5 School Ambassador, added: “I think our Harvest collection is really kind because we help people less fortunate than we are.”
