A Wisbech school’s harvest festival has generated a bumper crop for two good causes.

Wisbech Grammar School and its Preparatory School, Magdalene House, ran activities and food stalls to raise £718.05 for the Teenage Cancer Trust.

Pupils also donated non-perishable food which was donated to Wisbech Food Bank to assist many local families and children who are in need.

Archery, wet sponge throwing, welly-wanging, netball and football were amongst the activities on offer with plenty of cakes and homemade goods to enjoy in between.

Trevor Wright, from the Wisbech Food Bank, said: “We are amazed at the generosity of pupils and parents at Wisbech Grammar School, we receive many collections from supermarkets and none have been as large as this.

“We usually receive between 12-15 trays per collection but Wisbech Grammar School managed to collect around 35 trays of food.”
