Dear Parents and Carers
Harvest Assembly and Collection for Dunbar Foodbanks
We will be holding our Harvest Collection and Assembly on Friday 26th October.
This is a very special assembly where we think about all the wonderful foods that we grow and enjoy both locally and around the world.
It is also an opportunity to think about others who may not, for lots of reasons, have enough food to feed themselves and their families. We can all help in a small way by donating a food item to Dunbar Basics Bank. The children are encouraged to bring in an item to our assembly.
Please find a ‘shopping list’ of items that the Basics Bank would love to receive.
Thanks so much for your support.
