Next Friday we will be holding a Harvest Festival themed assembly.
While many of us will not be actually harvesting food from fields, garden or allotments at this time of year, we think it is a good opportunity to collect some produce to donate to our local food bank (details of which can be found here: http://croydon.foodbank.org.uk).
We are not asking for large donations – a single packet or tin of food would be wonderful and, as we are a large school, it would all add up. The items that the food bank tell us they need most are listed below:
- Canned Meat
- Canned Fish
- Canned Meals/pies etc
- Canned Fruit
- Canned Puddings
- Long Life Milk -500ml
- Sugar – 500g bags
- Long life Fruit Juice & Squash
- Baby Nappies
- Instant Coffee
- Shower Gel
In order to encourage donations, any child that is able to contribute something to the food bank will be allowed to wear their own clothes on Friday.
Many thanks for your support and participation.
