Food for needy at festival
CHILDREN and parents alike made a "huge effort" to collect food for the city's needy while celebrating harvest festival.
Youngsters at Shakespeare Primary School collected the equivalent of three-and-a-half shopping trolleys of dried foods and tins for the Plymouth's Foodbank.
Headteacher Karen Menis said the children had been learning all about food from the sea this term – and marked the harvest festival by having a "special celebration".
"The children marked the occasion through song and poetry which was all fish-themed," said Ms Menis.

"I would like to send out a huge thank you to the parents, children and staff for supporting the event so well.
"We had a really good response from everyone and did really well to collect so much food."
She said the youngsters also learned about the Foodbank, which feeds disadvantaged people throughout the city.
