Children at Tannery Drift First School have been learning about harvest traditions in the UK as part of their harvest festival celebrations.

Families at the school donated food items, including many home-grown vegetables, for the harvest display.

Food from the display was sold after the harvest assembly to raise money for Link Ethiopia – a total of £148.34 was collected.

The charity is dedicated to changing lives through education in Ethiopia and increasing cultural awareness between young people in Ethiopia and the UK.

The school donated all remaining fresh food to Royston care home Richard Cox House and the remaining tinned and dried food to Royston Foodbank.
