Children from all the year groups at Hunstanton’s Glebe House School donated to the town’s food bank at their Harvest Assembly.

Having checked which products were running low with Richard Shaw, the Foodbank’s co-ordinator, eight boxes full of food were handed over on Monday.

Richard Shaw said: “On behalf of the food bank I thank you for your gifts, all of which will be given to local people who come to us for all sorts of reasons, for example they may have had their hours of work cut at the end of the holiday season and find themselves short of money or perhaps they have become ill.

“Please thank your parents tell them that the recipients will benefit from their generosity.”

Headmaster John Crofts said: “We are delighted to support a local charity; giving to the food bank follows on from our Harvest Assembly this morning with Rev Susan Bowden-Pickstock who was talking about our responsibility to the world and not just ourselves.”

The harvest festival sheaf centrepiece, held here by Ruby Turner-Smith, was baked by Mrs Crofts and was later taken to Thornham Church.
