A village primary school got a helping hand with its harvest celebrations from a neighbouring housebuilder.

Farndon Primary School received a cash boost of £200 from Taylor Wimpey North West towards the activity, which was in aid of raising valuable funds for The Farndon Foodbank.

Headteacher at Farndon Primary School Andy Walker said: “Harvest is a key calendar date in the school’s diary, as it gives us a chance to all come together and help those who are less fortunate than ourselves.

“The activity is fundamental to the school’s curriculum and gives us an invaluable opportunity to teach our pupils the importance of giving something back and helping others.”

Sales manager for Taylor Wimpey North West Stuart Craig said: “Harvest is a wonderful activity for the whole school to get involved in to help those in need.

“It’s great to be supporting the school on such an exciting and worthwhile initiative, and one that certainly teaches a number of valuable lessons, which stay with you for life.”

Taylor Wimpey’s newly opened Wellington Green development, features a range of three and four bedroom homes.

Andy added: “It’s been another fantastic year for our harvest and, on behalf of the whole school, we are so grateful for Taylor Wimpey’s support.”
