Wisbech School’s bumper harvest festival

Wisbech Grammar School pupils raised nearly �1470 for charity at their harvest fair on Tuesday.

Year 11 food and nutrition students baked two yeasted bread dough harvest loaves glazed with egg, under the watchful eye of teacher Alison Sloan.

These formed the centrepiece of the bumper display of produce in the hall for the festival assembly.

There were also activities like face painting, a chance to put teachers in the stocks, a penalty shoot-out and apple bobbing.

Money raised at the sale was split between charities including the Teenage Cancer Trust, Barnardo's, Diabetes UK and Families against Neuroblastoma, while sixth formers distributed harvest produce to the Salvation Army Citadel, the Rosmini Centre, the Wisbech Foyer young people's hostel, the Octavia View hostel, the Rosebank Centre, Edina Court and the Parson Drove day centre.

Charities coordinator Jan Wildman said: 'I am delighted to have reached out to so many needy people in the Wisbech area by means of our harvest gifts.'
