Youngsters celebrated this year’s harvest by donating food to those more in need than themselves.

Pupils at Leighfield Academy in Uppingham decided to help Rutland Foodbank at their Key Stage 2 harvest service this year.

All the children were invited to take in a donation 
of tinned or dried food to school.

Leighfield Academy administrator Jeanette Wedge said: “We collected a great amount which we then took to St Peter and St Paul’s Church in Uppingham so that it could be distributed to those who need it.”

Rutland Foodbank holds weekly sessions opposite Jules One-Stop in Oakham from 1pm to 3pm, Mondays and Wednesday, and at St Peter and St Paul’s in Uppingham 10am to midday on Fridays.
