Pupils' harvest helps families in crisis
1:00pm Saturday 26th October 2013 in New Forest News
CHILDREN and parents of Hillside Community First School in Verwood enjoyed a bounteous harvest festival in Verwood Methodist Church.
Each year group prepared their own songs or poems about harvest, as well as a presentation about the Don McMath Foundation, a charity set up by local people to help schools in Gambia.
Hillside pupils already sponsor Esther, Muhammed and Fatoumatta and the Rights Respecting Steering Group in the school decided they would like the collection from the service to go towards the continuing support of these children.
The dried and tinned foods brought in by the pupils will be sent to the Trussell Trust to help local families in crisis.
