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.”
