To celebrate Harvest Festival this year, Heathfield tried something completely different. Each student armed with a £5 note went to a local supermarket to buy food or items for a family of four who rely on food banks. The girls took their challenge very seriously making sure they purchased a good range of items for their money. The results were amazing – the Chapel sanctuary was filled with gifts purposely and thoughtfully given, ready for delivery to the food bank. Although we had more gifts than ever before and more money was spent than ever before, the true gift was the care, consideration and time given by each of the girls to gather items to help others in need.
