We donned our wellies and headed off to All Saints Church for our Harvest Festival. The Church was packed with friends and family. School Council had once again chosen to raise money for Farm Africa- to give Hunger the Boot and raise money for African Farmers. Their target was £300 - enough to provide a village with seeds, tools and irrigation. Thanks to the generosity of everyone, as well as great wellie shaking by our School Council as parents left Church and we started our walk, they raised a magnificent £505. Well done everyone!
