A huge pile of food was collected by a Worle school to help people in a crisis who are struggling to afford necessary, everyday items.

St Mark’s Primary School, in St Marks Road, asked parents and pupils to take in non-perishable food items which could be donated for its harvest festival.

The school choir sang in the main hall in two harvest celebrations, one for reception and key stage one children, and the other for key stage two.

Parents and grandparents were invited to join in the festivities.

The food was donated to Weston-super-Mare Foodbank, which provides emergency items to people in a crisis.

Last year, the charity helped 3,156 people.
