Charity and Community
Thank you - we raised almost £100 for the St. Alban's Diocese Harvest Appeal 'Give Peas a Chance' - to help farmers in Malawi.
Company at Christmas
'Company at Christmas' is a Churches Together charity that helps to ensure people who would otherwise be alone on Christmas Day have company - tea, entertainment and lunch.
You have raised over £280.00 to support this worthy cause - thank you for your generosity.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the Reverse Advent - donating much needed food and other essential items for Bishop's Stortford Food Bank.
Thank you to Mrs Williamson for organising the appeal this year.
Save the Children
Well done! You raised £124.00 for Save the Children by wearing your Christmas jumpers!

"Harvest Collection 2017 - Bishop’s Stortford Food Bank
To the staff and pupils at St Michael’s CE Primary School
On behalf of everyone at Bishop’s Stortford Food Bank we would like to say a huge thank you to everyone at your school for supporting the Harvest Appeal 2017.
Your generous donations have been sorted and categorised, and they are now in our storage facilities awaiting distribution. Please be assured that your harvest donations make a very real difference to the people living in crisis in the local area.
Thank you for making arrangements for this year’s collection to be delivered to the Food Bank in Bishop’s Stortford – we really appreciate your help in this aspect of the Harvest Appeal, because we have so few volunteers available to collect from schools directly.
Best wishes to you all and thank you for working in partnership with our charity. Perhaps you might consider partnering with us again in the future. Every year, we have to raise approximately £10,000 in order to run the Food Bank. If any of you would like to take part in further charitable fundraising projects, we would love to hear from you. Perhaps you might consider ‘adopting’ us as your Charity Of The Year in 2018. Please contact Jane Towns if you would like to discuss this further (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Kind regards to you all and thank you once again for your support of the Food Bank at Harvest 2017.

In 2018, we supported the Bishop's Stortford Food Bank and the YMCA with our harvest boxes.
