ROSSENDALE Hospice was the theme of a school’s Harvest Festival.
Edenfield CE Primary School is supporting the hospice as it marks 30 years of serving patients in the Valley with life limiting illnesses.
The pupils in Year 2 did a wonderful job of telling the story of the birth of the hospice, and presented a range of landmark events in its history though drama and music.
They even composed their very own song in honour of all its achievements.
Year 1 complemented this presentation with an overview of the different ways money is raised, as the hospice relies on almost £1m worth of donations to keep its service going.
The school were delighted to welcome Joanna Williams, head of fundraising, to the Edenfield Parish Church service and she thoroughly enjoyed their interpretation of the story.
In a letter to the children, Joanna ●● Edenfield CE Primary’s recent Harvest Festival was planned in support of the Rossendale Hospice Penny Pinching Project stated: “I just wanted to give a heartfelt thank you and to tell you how wonderful it was to be invited to your Harvest Festival today.
“It was a beautiful service and the children were fantastic. It must have taken a lot of thought and preparation by the staff and the children.”
