YOUNGSTERS helped fill a trolley with food for Harwich Foodbank.

Harwich Community Primary School decided to support the foodbank during the coronavirus crisis.

The school’s mascot Attendance Ted was handed the food by children which he put in his trolley.

The trolley, filled to the brim, was then given to the foodbank for families in need.

Gillian Day, attendance officer, organised the event and said she is very proud that at a time of need everyone pulled together to make this a huge success. Her thanks go out to everyone who donated.

She added: “All the children look forward to seeing Attendance Ted on a weekly basis as he rewards the class with the highest attendance percentage and seeing Ted in the trolley excited them even more.”

The foodbank is in Iconsfield Park, in Dovercourt.
