Bede’s Prep pupils with some of the items of food collected for the School’s Harvest Festival.
Children at Bede’s Prep in Eastbourne have been busy collecting tins of food for the School’s annual Harvest Festival collection, which will be given to the local foodbank to help local families in need during Half Term.
Miriam McDonell, Charities Coordinator at Bede’s Prep, said: “Historically, school summer holidays were designated to allow children in rural areas of the country the time to assist their families with bringing in the harvest.
“Although things have changed a great deal over the years, staff and pupils at Bede’s Prep always gather together as a community each harvest time to celebrate and give thanks for the food we eat. We are delighted to donate food to help people in our local community.”
