Ashville Junior and Pre-Prep School harvest festival benefits Harrogate’s homeless

A North Yorkshire and the people it supports are to benefit from a combined Harvest Festival Service.

Youngsters from Ashville’s Pre-Prep and Junior Schools joined forces for the traditional religious service and amassed a large collection of tinned and dried food, which in turn is being donated to the .

Catherine Frieze, Ashville College’s Assistant Chaplain who led the service, told her young audience about the importance of rain and water, and, how, in many countries, it is a precious resource where children have to walk four times a day – one hour each way – to collect unclean water from a well.


Ashville Pre-Prep headteacher Carol Berrie said:

This was a very thought provoking Harvest Festival Service.

Mrs Frieze’s talk made the children realise just how lucky  we are to live in a country where we can get fresh, clean water at the turn of a tap.

We also learned about people much closer to home who are less fortunate than us, hence the collection of food for the Harrogate Homeless Project.
