Harvest this year involved more than 1200 people, including the members of Bengeworth Academy and St. Richard’s First School. It was lovely to see so many people in church.
St. Richard’s retiring collection raised £145 for the Ifakara Bread Project. (You can find out more about their work at www.ibpfreebread.com .)
On Sunday, the congregation held a Harvest Service. After the service produce was sold, raising £100 for CMS. They then enjoyed a Bring and Share Lunch.
During the course of the celebrations, 24 large bags of tins and 11 large boxes of fresh produce were delivered to Caring Hands, to be used in food parcels and the preparing of lunches.
