Pupils and parents at The Ryleys School have been celebrating Harvest by donating hundreds of food items, which have now been delivered to those most in need within the local and wider community.
Following a celebratory Harvest Assembly, where children throughout the school performed songs, poems and prayers, pupils from the school then hand-delivered food parcels to local elderly, Alderley Edge residents.
Head Teacher Mrs Julia Langford, said: "Harvest is always a time of year when we all come together think about people most in need and how we can help them. Our Harvest Festival and subsequent home deliveries were a lovely opportunity for our pupils to show kindness towards people in our community and the residents really appreciated the food and meeting the children."
Many additional food packages were delivered to Openshaw Food bank which is just 15 miles from the school. Captain John Bishton, of the Salvation Army, runs the well-used food bank and has been working closely with The Ryleys School for over 15 years.
Captain John Bishton said: "The food items will be very gratefully received by many people who visit the Openshaw foodbank. We donate about three days of food to people who visit, which is really appreciated. We always take time to listen to people and will provide them with additional contacts for further help whenever we can."
