After planning and delivering the Harvest Festival the previous week, the Year 5 Narwhals at St Michael’s CofE Primary School in Alnwick had another important job to do in church last week.

The children met up with Rev Julia Myles, the curate of St Michael’s Church, and personnel from the Alnwick Food Bank to hand over the collection of dried and tinned food to support needy people in the pupils’ own locality.

Headteacher Gavin Johnston said: “The children really wanted to help those in need right on our doorstep.

“The collection this year was greatly received – thank you so much to all of the parents and friends who contributed so generously.”

As we reported last week, the Narwhals class also supported the Mini Michaels cookie morning at the church, which raised more than £120 for Macmillan, as well as the school hosting its own coffee morning and cake stall.
