Harvest Festival

Dear Parents and Carers,


This year our school will be supporting Thanet Food Link for our Harvest Festival. This is an organisation that is run by volunteers within Thanet to serve the needs of those without food in our community. Our Harvest Festival will take place during our end of term assembly at Holy Trinity Church on Friday 19th October. Unfortunately, due to space restrictions we can not invite parents to join us this year.


Donations of food will be taken by the children to church where they will be left for Food Link volunteers to collect the following week. The Food Link is especially asking for donations of soup, tinned fish and tinned meals at the moment, however any dried, tinned food, or drinks like tea and coffee, or packet food like biscuits will also be very welcome. Please remember that your child will have to carry their donations to church with them for the assembly.


We will make sure we take photos of our harvest gifts for our website, so you can see the results of your generosity, which has been so evident in previous years.


For more information about the work of the Thanet Food Link visit


All donations should be sent into school with your children on Friday 19th October.


On behalf of Food Link and local people who will receive your donations, I would like to thank you in advance for your generosity.


Heather Weitzel, Assistant Head Teacher
