Update - Message of thanks from Thurrock Food Bank:
"This was an amazing collection which weighed 658.6kg - the generosity of those who donated is truly humbling".
It's Harvest Time and we are celebrating with a Harvest Feast on Thursday: Chicken Goujons or Pizza with Curly Fries or Baked Potato with fillings accompanied by beans, sweetcorn and help-yourself salad. Followed by Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream, yoghurts and our usual fresh fruit selection. We have also ordered fruity scratch 'n' sniff stickers for children who have a school lunch. This is FREE for infants; children can just choose their meal in the morning. For Juniors you need to book and pay on ParentMail.
Children have also been practising and recording their contributions for our harvest videos which should be on our Friends & Family Facebook page by the weekend. Please note; all children will be included in any singing and art work but will only be visible in the videos if you have given permission for us to share their photos on social media.
Last but not least, please send in your donations for Thurrock Food Bank. They are asking for Tinned Fish, Tinned Meat, Rice, Sponge Puddings, Tinned Potatoes, Instant Potato Mash, Biscuits, Tea, Coffee, Long Life Fruit Juice, Pasta Sauce, Tinned Custard, Tinned Spaghetti and Toiletries (e.g Shower Gel, Soap, Deodorant). These donations are needed even more right now.
Thank you for your support.
