School children celebrated the harvest festival by donating food to a nursing home.

Pupils at Avanti Court Primary School, Carlton Drive, Ilford, collected tined and non-perishable food and presented the fruits of their labour to representatives of Springfield Care Centre, Springfield Drive, Barkingside.

Sapna Claire, admin assistant at Avanti Court Primary School said: “The children enjoyed collecting the food with their parents and they were made aware of how to share.

“They donated to people who find it harder to get food for themselves and it was a great assembly.

“The harvest collection also incorporated one of our school values of being respectful to others.”
