Our Harvest Festival this year, in addition to encouraging thanks for and appreciation of harvest in the UK also promoted the valuable work of a charity called Send a Cow. http://www.sendacow.org.uk/

The charity help thousands of African families grow enough food to eat, sell their produce and develop small businesses that last. They provide training, livestock, seeds and ongoing support, to help families and orphans leave poverty for good.

Our Assembly told the story of Beatrice and her seven children and how their life changed when the man from ‘Send a Cow’ and his ‘cows on a mission’ came calling!

All year groups were involved and the retiring collection raised a wonderful £241
Year 2 used their maths skills to calculate what we could buy with this money and decided on ;

Local Cattle
Cattle Fodder (3) 3x£10 = £30
Plant an Orchard
A Rabbit

Total = £241
