Children at Headstart Nursery in Market Deeping were taught about caring and sharing as part of their harvest festival.

Rector of the town’s St Guthlac’s Church the Rev Philip Brent blessed the “store cupboard items” brought in by the 54 children.

Nursery deputy manager Sarah Johnson said: “We gave the items to the warden-controlled flats, for older people who, perhaps, need that extra bit of help.

“This is the first year we have done this. Being a local nursery we wanted to be involved in the local community and teach our children to care for people who are less fortunate.

“The children were really excited and asked questions about who ‘the food was for’ and what ‘the man from the church’ did.”
