Bickerstaffe’s community spirit benefits elderly

Following their Harvest service at Holy Trinity Church, pupils from class Four at Bickerstaffe CE School generously volunteered their time and efforts into benefitting the local community.

They began with collecting the heaps of food donated by parents, local farmers and village parishioners, and then went on divide it up into food hampers to distribute within the community of Stockley Crescent a local retirement home.

The residents were ‘delighted’ with their hampers and enjoyed chatting with the children about their hard work; one local resident, Mrs Beeby, was immensely touched by the generosity and community spirit of the children saying: “how much kindness can go a long way”.

As well as doing so much for the Harvest, class four also raised £85 in order to continue sponsoring Dipok – a ten-year-old Bangladeshi boy enrolled on the Bhatpara Child Sponsorship Program.

This £85 helped the church to succeed in reaching their goal of £350 which will sponsor Dipok for one whole year, paying for educational support, school uniforms, medical care, nutritional support and the opportunity to hear the gospel letters translated into his language.
