Pupils have donated food to stop homeless people from going hungry this winter.

Pupils at St Michael’s Primary School, on Flanshaw Lane, loaded up a van full of tinned food and rice for the Community Awareness Programme (CAP), the city’s homelessness charity.

Pastor Jonathan Robinson, of the New Life Christian Centre, gave an assembly to the pupils about the importance of the harvest festival.

He said: “Harvest festival doesn’t seem to be as popular as it used to be but it is very important to CAP, as it serves up to 70 meals a day and this food has to come from somewhere.

“When I turned to give the assembly the children had already prepared packages of food to be given to CAP.”
