Chilton primary pupils donate to Salvation Army and Porchlight

Chilton pupils have made generous donations

A harvest of kindness and caring has produced a mini mountain of foods for local worthwhile causes, thanks to Chilton Primary School, Ramsgate.

Pupils, families and staff donated an array of packets and tins of food as well as fresh fruit.

They will be donated to the area’s needy by the town’s Salvation Army.

And the annual Pennies for Porchlight project saw children create and decorate tiny houses and then fill them with money popped through the slots in the roofs.

Head of School Kate Law said: “Our Harvest Festival assemblies for pupils and families were uplifting events for our school community.

“Chilton is always keen to support charities and worthwhile causes, and we are happy to help out those who need food that will be distributed by the Salvation Army and also the vulnerable and homeless through the Porchlight charity.

“At our assemblies we sang harvest celebration songs and focussed on the need to help those less fortunate than ourselves. This ethos underpins one of the many core values our children learn throughout their school life with us.

“Once again we were overwhelmed with donations for both of our charities which carry out much-needed work with a cross-section of our community. It is a positive thing for our children to know that they can help make life a little brighter for some families and individuals who need support.”
