School makes harvest donations

Primary school pupils from Exmouth have shown their caring nature by helping out their elderly neighbours.

Beacon C of E Primary School organised a collection of food as part of their Harvest festival celebrations, to be donated to Exmouth Age Concern.

When all the donations had been received, some of the school’s children made their way down to the charity’s day centre in new street to hand over the produce.

Their donations, which included fruit, vegetables, tinned food and pasta, were welcomed by the charity, which offers lunches to elderly people as part of its day service.

The school has been making harvest donations to Age Concern for several years.

School head teacher Sue Lockwood said: “We were very pleased that contributions from our families were so generous to Age Concern, as part of our Harvest celebrations.”
