At Harvest and other key times in the year such as Easter, we support the charity linked to our church called Mary's Child. This is charity share the food, toiletries and monetary donations with people more local to our school, including Cardea, Stanground, Farcet and Fletton, extending out into Peterborough if needed too. The children in our school are always very generous and they help to organise the food ready for collection.
Our year 6 children this year (2021) said they were amazed by the amount of food we had collected but were shocked to learn that 3 trollies of food would probably last about 3 weeks of food parcels for those who needed it.
At Easter, we donated Easter Eggs for Reverend Andrew and Carol to share with the community, especially for the children who may not receive one otherwise.
Mary's child also supports our families at time of struggle such as Christmas and provided some of our families with a food package or small gift for the children.
