With many churches in our community still closed and educational establishments unable to celebrate Harvest Festival in the normal way, Bournes Green Schools have come together to organise a contactless food collection. Harvest is an important time of year for many charities who rely on the donations of non-perishable foods to support people in crisis. It is essential that they are restocked as they move into a period of exceptionally high levels of need.

Our Bournes Green Schools are supporting three local charities (One Love Soup Kitchen, SVP - Short Street Shelter and the Southend Foodbank) who help some of the most vulnerable in our town.

You will be able to leave donations of food and toiletries at one of our contactless donation stations on Friday 18th September (full details on the flyer). If you are isolating or would prefer to donate cash then please consider making a donation to the Southend Foodbank (you can gift aid to increase your donation by 25%):

If you are a member of a local church or community group and would like to organise a contactless collection, helpful guidance can be found through this link

As always, thank you for your support and for helping to make a difference.
