A leading North Yorkshire school has helped local charities by donating the proceeds of their Harvest Festival to those in need.
Cundall Manor School held their annual Harvest Festival at Topcliffe Church last week and collected a huge range of goods for Ripon Salvation Army and local agencies across North Yorkshire.
Every form in the school took part in the raising and giving. Joint Head at the school, John Sample, said: “It was great to see so many people at our service. The generosity of our parents and pupils is always astounding.”
Stephanie Ruddy, who works at the Salvation Army in Ripon, added: “We would like to thank everyone who gave so generously. We are very grateful for all these donations.
“The food will add a great deal to the Emergency Food Bank used by agencies such as the YMCA, social services, family support units and we even send food to places such as St George’s Crypt in Leeds so the food will help a great many people across the region.”
The Harvest Festival incorporated a service which was taken by the Reverend Alison Askew in front of a full church of proud teachers, parents and grandparents at the nearby Topcliffe Church.
