Pupils har­vest char­ity cash

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS - STE­FAN JAJECZNYK

SCHOOL pupils have been cel­e­brat­ing the har­vest sea­son by rais­ing money for char­i­ties help­ing to im­prove the lives of im­pov­er­ished peo­ple in Africa.

Chil­dren from the Bosley St Mary’s pri­mary school give thanks to the lo­cal farm­ing com­mu­nity ev­ery au­tumn dur­ing Har­vest fes­ti­val, while also supporting a global cause that helps the needy.

This half term, they sup­ported the ‘Send a Cow’ char­ity, which pro­vides tools, equip­ment and train­ing to help peo­ple in im­pov­er­ished coun­tries learn how to grow their own food ef­fec­tively.

The ap­peal was launched as part of the Har­vest ser­vice at Bosley church, where all pupils took part.

In hon­our of the farm­ing com­mu­nity, the school or­gan­ised fundrais­ing ac­tiv­i­ties in­clud­ing a farm­ers’ mar­ket, with pupils bring­ing in pro­duce from their own fam­i­lies’ farms.

They also took part in farm­ing-re­lated games, a cake sale and tea party, com­pe­ti­tions and had a farm­ing themed dressin­gup day.

The pupils raised nearly £210, which is enough money to pro­vide seeds, tools and train­ing for as many as seven fam­i­lies in Uganda.
