RAFT

We would like to thank all our families for their generous harvest gifts for our local Rossendale Foodbank – RAFT. We have been overwhelmed by your generous contributions. The children enjoyed our Harvest assembly and brought their contributions to the hall.  We listened to poems and music which reminded is how lucky we all are and how important it is to help others.  Staff from school are taking the food to the Foodbank tomorrow and we know that Raft will appreciate all the items received.   Raft is run by volunteers, who weekly pack 30 or more food parcels for local families in need.  This includes food for pets too, special packs for new-born babies and packs for people who find themselves homeless.  Towards Christmas they try and make their food bags have festive items in them too and they also hold a Christmas Party for children.  After half-term we will be a collection point for RAFT on an ongoing basis and you are welcome to leave any food in the box which will be available on the yard.  Please do have a look at their website and Facebook page. Thank you for your continuing support.
