Pupils from Stoke College near Haverhill helped the community by delivering items of nourishment to a food bank in the town.

Six youngsters from the college donated 55.3kg of food to Haverhill Food Bank from their Harvest Festival assembly.

The pupils were also given a short tour of the food bank and were able to see how the food was stored and given a short talk on how the food is distributed from the volunteers.

Food bank’s projects director Henry Wilson was appreciative of the school’s efforts and has offered to come to visit the school and talk to pupils of all ages about the work of the charity.

Headteacher, Frank Thompson said: “The Year 1 pupils were fascinated by their visit to the food bank and have been sharing what they’ve learned since they returned to school.”

Run by REACH Community Projects, The Haverhill Food bank provides families with food parcels.
