Usually at this time of year, we look forward to holding Harvest assemblies where families are welcomed into school and each year group participates in an autumn or Harvest themed performance. Unfortunately, due to the current Covid-19 restrictions it was not possible for them to take place. Instead we asked our families to bring donations into school for us to give to our local Food Bank
Manna Food Bank is a local charity in the Borough of Spelthorne, supporting local families and individuals who are referred to by agencies, both statutory and voluntary, who are perceived as being in emergency need of food and household essentials.
We were overwhelmed with the large amount of donations which we have received and these were collected by Manna food Bank just before the half term break. Thank you to all our families for your continued support, together we can make a difference in supporting a local charity for local families.
***UPDATE*** – we have received a letter from Manna Food bank thanking our school community for all their efforts. We collected a huge 230kgs of food – well done to all our Buckland Primary families – we know this will make a huge difference to many families in the local area
