BOYS AND GIRLS AT ST NICHOLAS HOUSE, CHRIST COLLEGE’S JUNIOR SECTION, CELEBRATED HARVEST IN STYLE AT THEIR SPECIAL END OF TERM HARVEST SERVICE.
This year the Harvest collection focused on a charity close to home, supporting the incredibly worthwhile charity of Brecon Food Bank.
Brecon Food Bank provides food for other local people who are in need. Every day people in the UK go hungry for reasons ranging from redundancy to receiving an unexpected bill on a low income. Food banks provide a minimum of three days’ emergency food and support to people experiencing crisis.
Pupils in St Nicholas House were asked to make either a donation of food or a cash donation. After speaking with the charity St Nicholas House were asked to be ‘champions’ of a particular group of items. This avoids building up a surplus of certain items especially baked beans and pasta! They asked St Nicholas House pupils to donate items such as tinned fruit, tinned meat (corned beef, ham etc) and even toothpaste or toothbrushes. The display on the altar was most impressive along with cash donations amounting to £110.
Christ College were delighted to support this local charity and were very grateful for the kind donations from our families. Mr Hugh Thomas from the charity attended the service and spoke passionately about the work of the volunteers and how they offer support to people who are ‘up against it’. The children really enjoyed singing seasonal songs and performing short sketches for the congregation who joined in for the final tune of ‘Wonderful World’.
The service gave us all much to think about and much to be thankful for and there is no better time to be thinking of others than at Harvest time.
