Harvest festival Sept 23
This harvest we want to encourage the children to think of others and to show respect through their actions. On Wednesday 13th September we will be celebrating harvest in a service at St Peter’s Church. If you would like to volunteer to help with walking the children to and from the church please contact your child’s class teacher.
Food costs are rising, utility costs are up and fuel prices have increased which has resulted in more people needing food help. If possible, we would like children to bring an item of food or toiletries that will be donated to the Exmouth Food Bank, which provides emergency food for local people in crisis, including those in Budleigh Salterton. Your child will need to carry this to church so please only bring in one item (no glass jars please).
The food bank are currently in need of the following items:
- Tins of soup
- Tinned tomatoes
- Tinned baked beans and spaghetti
- Tinned meat meals such as stews, meatballs or curry
- Tinned cold meats such as ham, chicken or corned beef
- Tinned tuna
- Tinned fruit, rice pudding or custard
- Bottles of squash
- Treats such as chocolate, crisps and sweets
Alternatively you may wish to donate cash (in a sealed envelope) which the food bank can use to buy what else is needed to provide nutritionally balanced food parcels.
Any donations are, of course, entirely optional and we understand that not all families will be able to donate at this time.
Thank you in advance for your support.
