Wisbech Grammar School and its Preparatory School, Magdalene House, joined together to celebrate the annual Harvest Festival last week.

Pupils and staff ran activities and food stalls to raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Pupils also generously donated non-perishable food which was donated to Wisbech Food Bank to assist many local families and children who are in need.

Archery, wet sponge throwing, welly-wanging, netball and football were amongst the activities on offer with plenty of cakes and homemade goods to enjoy.

The School managed to raise a total of £718.05 for the Teenage Cancer Trust and an impressive collection of food for the Wisbech Food Bank.

Trevor Wright from the Wisbech Food Bank said: “We are amazed at the generosity of pupils and parents at Wisbech Grammar School, we receive many collections from supermarkets and none have been as large as this.

We usually receive between 12 to 15 trays per collection but Wisbech Grammar School managed to collect around 35 trays of food.”
