Children at Meldreth Primary School have taken part in a special Harvest Festival assembly, in aid of a family support charity.

The donations of food that was collected for the festival was then passed onto Home-Start Royston & South Cambs for distribution among the disadvantaged families that they help to support.

A Home-Start spokesman said: “A very special thank you must go to headteacher Sasha Howard and her staff for helping to organise the assembly as well as to all the children who contributed to this successful event.

“Home-Start co-ordinator Jackie Cotton who attended the event was extremely impressed by what the children had achieved and said that their valuable contribution would help to make a big difference to some of the families who need it most.”
