CHILDREN at a Wigan primary school have donated food to help homeless people in the borough.
Pupils at Shevington Vale Primary School have collected tins and dried food to pass on to The Brick homeless centre, in Hallgate.
Annette Jones, teaching assistant, said; “Our school assembly was about food, and what is happening around the world and how we need people with love to give to those who need it.
“The children really wanted to donate food to the homeless in Wigan and help their local community.”
Trish Green, founder of The Brick, said: “We are delighted. A lot of schools and churches have got behind us this harvest and we have been given a lot of food.
“This will help with our food parcels which we give out to underprivileged families on a regular basis.
“We have had a mountain of food.
“It is tremendous.”
