YOUNGSTERS from Jellybabies Nursery and Pre-School still managed to donate items for their local food hub, despite the Harvest Festival having to be cancelled because of Covid-19 restrictions.
The service is normally performed in person in front of parents and carers but that was not possible because of the pandemic.
Jellybabies bosses, however, felt it was still important for the children to take part and learn about harvest, care for others, where our food comes from, along with how and where it grows.
So they invited the children to bring in donations of food which was collected by the South Birmingham Community food hub which supplies free food parcels for those who need them.
Nursery manager Jacqueline Walker said: “We had a fantastic response from our parents and our children were taught about how they can help others by bringing food in from home that will go to those people who need it.
“The children particularly loved picking apples from our nature garden which went in with their donations.
Some of the children are pictured with the donations which went off to the South Birmingham Community food hub.
