The whole school came together to produce a rousing performance of The Rainbow Harvest. The children's coloured t-shirts forming a visual display of a stunning rainbow whilst each class took their own colour and treated the congregation to a wealth of poetry, stories and plays. The service was ably narrated by our wonderful Year 6 children and interspersed with lively songs. The true meaning of the rainbow was shared in two Bible passages from Genesis and Revelations. Our focus this year was brightening the lives of others with our harvest and donating to the Farnborough Food Bank for local people in need. We were overwhelmed by the generous contributions from our families which were displayed in a rainbow pattern at the church. The St Mark's team would like to extend a huge thank you to the North Camp Methodist Church for allowing us to use their facilities whilst St Mark's Church is undergoing work. Our harvest food donations will be joined with the contributions from the Methodist Church and collected by the food bank as a community collaboration. Thank you to everyone in the St Mark's family for supporting our Rainbow Harvest!
Message from the Farnborough Food Bank
"We would like to thank you all, the staff and pupils and their guardians for the splendid Harvest Festival Donations that were kindly offered to us. The haul of provisions from your own Harvest from St.Mark's came to 82.8kgs. A terrific effort!
All stock will be dated and stored for rotation before filling the cupboards at our FoodBank Outlets, both at Cove and Aldershot. Each and every item will go to assisting those in crisis that puts a high demand on the individual/s finances and abilities.
Our ethos is "nobody should go hungry tonight".
Thanks once again!"
