Bedales Pre-prep pupils provide Harvest feast for local charities

Pupils from Bedales Pre-prep, Dunannie, produced a feast of Harvest produce for residents of Ramscote Home for the Elderly and local homeless charity Stonepillow at their recent Harvest Festival.

During the Festival the children from Nursery through to Year 3 performed music and drama to themes including the story of the Gingerbread Man, how our food is cultivated and the tale of Thanksgiving.

Commenting on the Festival, Jo Webbern, Head of Dunannie, said: “Our Harvest Celebration was really lovely set against the backdrop of an Autumnal arrangement created by our parents combined with the children’s display of trees. Ramscote were delighted to see some of our children arrive with beautifully decorated boxes packed with gorgeous gifts, fresh fruit and vegetables. The donations to the Stonepillow charity were also plentiful and we look forward to welcoming a representative of the charity to our assembly before half-term”.

The elderly residents of Ramscote were very grateful to receive a large tin of drinking chocolate so that the kitchen can add hot chocolate as well as tea and coffee to the drinks menu.
