Pupils with donated food for Weston Foodbank.


GENEROUS parents, staff and students from Walliscote Primary School in Weston-super-Mare donated tins and packets of dried food by the hundred, as the school gathered in the hall for a harvest assembly last week.

Visitor Dani Mortimer from Farmlink talked to the children on Wednesday about where food comes from and the importance of farming.

All food collected went to Weston foodbank where it will help less fortunate families from the town. The day finished with a harvest song.

A spokesman for the school said: “The children sang their song beautifully. Well done children and thank you for a wonderful harvest assembly.”
