Youngsters learned about helping others as they donated harvest gifts for a project providing food for people living on the breadline in their own town.

Children from Fairfield Infants and Colneis Junior schools in Felixstowe took dry goods, tinned food and toiletries for their annual harvest festival services at Trinity Methodist Church.

All the children at both schools attended – with church minister Rev Diane Smith holding three services on one day for all the pupils to be able to join in.

The gifts each child took, along with extra bags of food donated by parents, will be donated to the BASIC Life charity’s DIP – Donations into Parcels – project.

The charity, which has two shops in Felixstowe and Walton, supports projects and people in the town.

Donations to DIP are made into food parcels to help people identified by councils, CAB and social services who are in most need.
