Harvest Festival at the Hawthorns Clevedon
The annual Harvest Festival is an important date in British farming to give thanks for the crops gathered and to show gratitude for the food they have. It’s also a time for reflection and supporting those who are less fortunate. The Hawthorns Clevedon takes pride in hosting their annual Harvest Festival celebration to unite their community to support those struggling to provide food for themselves or their families.
Throughout October, residents, staff, and relatives at the Hawthorns Clevedon and members of the local community have kindly donated an overwhelming collection of food and household essentials to the Clevedon and District Foodbank. A charity that Hawthorns Clevedon has long supported, the Clevedon-based foodbank’s goal is to stop hunger in the local area.
On Friday 14th October, the community held their Harvest Festival service, welcoming representatives from the foodbank to give an informative talk to residents about the work they do. They were later presented with generous donations received throughout the week, which they were very grateful to receive.
Speaking about the day, Customer Service Manager Aggie Jasinski said, “It is so touching for us to present the donations to Sue and Kelly from Clevedon and District Foodbank. It is great to support the less fortunate people facing real-life crises.”
