Oak Tree pupils’ caring harvest goods donations

Posted onPosted on 11th Oct

Pupils at Oak Tree Primary School, Mansfield, worked in partnership with the Oak Tree Tesco store and the Sherwood Forest Foodbank to donate harvest goods.

Youngsters took items into the school for a harvest festival, which were then given to the foodbank.

Tesco customers donate items in-store for the foodbank, which creates food packs for families in need.

Oak Tree headteacher Mark Thrower and pupils took their goods to the store (above), where staff and Kate and Malcolm Miller, of the foodbank, collected them.

Mark said: “We wanted to give our harvest celebration a local theme. We already have connections with both the foodbank and Tesco, so making this donation seemed an ideal solution.

“For our children to meet local representatives of both organisations raises their awareness of the impact their donations will make.”
