A WESTON-SUPER-MARE charity which hands out food parcels to people living in poverty welcomed a donation from one of the town’s primary schools.

Bournville Primary School in Selworthy Road held a harvest festival on September 24 to celebrate autumn, and to make donations of fresh and dried food.

Tinned food and packet items were given to Weston Foodbank – and the children went along for the handover to see what the charity is all about.

Manager of the foodbank Sarah Fraser gave the youngsters a tour of the North Street headquarters.

Fresh food items were also donated to the Gemini Project – a domestic abuse support service.
