Pupils harvest charity cash
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.
