Harvest Donations to Urban Outreach
Wednesday, 12 October 2016
The generous donation made to the Senior Girls’ Harvest collection this year have been donated to local charity Urban Outreach.
In the Girls’ Division Harvest assembly, a group of Year 7 girls talked about homelessness in Bolton and the important work Urban Outreach does to help people in the local community.
Amy Scoble in Year 8 also spoke during the assembly. Last year she was inspired by the School’s Christmas Hamper Challenge, which supported Urban Outreach’s Christmas Dinner On Jesus hamper campaign, and decided to volunteer with the charity. She talked about her personal experience helping to pack and distribute hampers for Christmas Dinner on Jesus over the festive period and assisting with Bolton Lunches, which provides packed lunches during holiday periods for children in Bolton who are eligible for free school dinners during term-time.
It was wonderful for the girls to hear more about Urban Outreach’s work from a pupil who has volunteered with the charity.
The donations made by pupils and their families for Harvest will make a real difference to Urban Outreach’s food bank and will help numerous families in the Bolton area over the coming months.
