This year our Harvest collection will be for the Winchester Basics Bank. They provide emergency food and clothes to individuals and families in need and aims to make appropriate resources available to the maximum number of people at their point of greatest need.

We are asking all parents to bring along a contribution to our harvest table in reception so we can deliver to the Winchester Basics Bank on Friday. See below for the items they are in most need of.

  • Tinned veg (especially carrots, mixed veg)
