Pensford Primary School pupils collect harvest for food bank
Pensford Primary School pupils gathered at All Saints Church, in Publow, for its annual harvest festival.
On the table were many items of food which had been donated by their parents to Bath's Food Bank, which is run by the Genesis Trust.
Paul Solly, from the trust, thanked everyone for collecting the food and said that 7.1 tonnes of food had been donated last year.
He explained where the food was going and how it would help many deprived families, and also talked about the trust's ongoing work, saying that the number of people needing food this year had increased on last year's figure.
Leading the service was the Rev Canon John Simpson, who introduced each class as they performed a song about harvest, the effect of the weather on harvest, and food.
Bath Food Bank was launched last year and provides food parcels to families and individuals who are in need for any reason.
Food is donated by people doing their normal shopping at local supermarkets, and then stored, packed and handed out at delivery points around the city.
