Ireleth pupils collect food donations

FOOD donations have been gathered by local school children in a bid to help those less fortunate in the area.

St Peter’s Primary School in Ireleth held a Harvest Festival to collect food to be donated to the Furness Homeless Group.

Mr Iain Lewis, headteacher, said: “Each year we collect food parcels from the parents. This year quite a lot of food was collected.”

The 54 pupils of the primary school helped collect a total of six containers of food, said Mr Lewis.

He added: “The children did a lot of research. They wanted to give something back.”

The children had been taken on a tour of Furness Homeless Group in Bath Street, Barrow, recently and Mr Lewis said that the pupils saw the difference they were making and how fortunate their lives are.

He said: “The trip helped the children realise just how lucky they are.”

The headteacher thanked everyone involved with the Harvest Festival for their efforts.

He said: “The parents made a great contribution and were very supportive. It’s a really worthwhile cause.”
