On Friday the 14th October, the children of St. Michael’s Primary School and Kingsteignton School went to St Michael’s Church in Kingsteignton to celebrate Harvest.
As part of this celebration the children and their families had brought to school donations of food and toiletries. These donations were to give to the HITS food-bank, a voluntary organisation that supports homeless people and people in crisis in the Teignbridge area.
Some examples of the donations were taken to the Harvest Service and used to symbolise the rest of the bounty back at school. This was all blessed by Father Mark and then the children and staff thanked God for their harvests this year, whether it was food or good friendships or something else!.
On return from the church, the Eco-councilors helped the HITS volunteers load everything into their van.
The food-bank has since written to thank us all and say that 176.74 kg of food donations were made, and will all go to help people in need in the wider the community of Teignbridge.
Thank you everybody for your help!
