Pupils took part in an annual harvest festival while helping good causes at St Mark’s Primary School in Worle.

Parents and carers attended the harvest service on Thursday, to see children from reception and year one classes prepare food baskets to be donated to elderly people in the community.

Children in years two to six were asked to donate money which will support Christian Aid.

The money will be used to buy goats for poor families who can sell milk, to provide training and equipment for people to start a career as a fisherman and buy pigs to help rural farmers in Cambodia.

The money will also be used to build granaries across the world, so people can store crops to sell at market.
