GENEROUS children from Roydon Primary Academy donated food and their time to those less fortunate.
Key stage two students visited a Harlow food bank and when they arrived they were given a tour of the premises. They were also shown the way in which donations are given to those in need.
Two school council representatives delivered the items of food which had been collected by their classmates. They also got to ask questions about the charity and its work.
The school also held a harvest festival at St Peter’s Church for pupils, teachers, parents and members of the community, when pupils performed poetry, sung songs and gave readings.
Head teacher Michael Clark said: “We are incredibly thankful to all who donated food for this brilliant cause. We have such a supportive community who came out to support the children at the festival, but also supported the cause to donate food, giving generously.
“I think the children have learnt a great deal from the experience, including how important it is to support others.”
