CARING children took their harvest festival campaign one step further – by helping out at Harlow Food Bank.
As part of the annual festival, pupils and families of Roydon Primary School collected 15 boxes of food.
Four members of the Junior Leadership Team, in Year 5 and 6, volunteered to deliver the parcels to the food bank and help to sort the food.
While there, pupils also got to ask questions and find out more about the service.
Michael Clark, head of school, said: “As a school, we are extremely proud of this group of children who are setting a great example to their peers.
“To have 15 boxes of food to donate shows the level of generosity from the Roydon community. We take great pride in being a part of the Roydon community and events like harvest festival show the power of the community coming together.”
The school held its harvest festival service at St Peter’s Church, in Roydon, where pupils sung, read poetry and said prayers, as well as displaying their art work.
