Harvest Collection

It’s that time of year again! We are asking the children and families of Mount Pleasant Primary School to make a contribution of dried food, tins, toiletries and non-perishable items in order to celebrate our Harvest. We will donate our Harvest collection to the Christchurch Centre food bank facility. I’m sure you’ll all agree there is much need in our communities for foodbanks in these difficult times. It will be lovely to see our Harvest collection going to such a worthy cause.

 If you would like to support our Harvest please bring any contributions in before Thursday 15th October.

Thank you
