Many thanks to all of our parents, families and friends for joining us for our Harvest Festival celebrations in school yesterday. Both celebration assemblies were really well-attended and we are grateful to Dave Morris and Alan from Hope Church, Hanbury Hill, for leading them. Many thanks to all our families for your generous Harvest Gifts, including the ‘Morning Coffee’ boxes and lots of toiletries, which will be collected by Black Country Foodbank on Tuesday morning. Black Country Foodbank helps vulnerable individuals and families in crisis through the provision of emergency food supplies for a period of three days, while a longer-term solution is developed. Their services have an enormous impact on the people who use them, giving them an important breathing space at a time of great need. The Food Bank only provides for individuals and families, who really are in need. Their aim is not to create dependency but to help those in crisis while other agencies work to address underlying problems. In total in 2017 Black Country Foodbank provided 182,560 meals across three boroughs in partnership with local churches and community groups.
