A group of children from Marlow’s First Steps First Preschool Nursery took several items of food and drink to a charity as part of their annual Harvest donation.

Organised by the preschool’s manager, Susan Campbell-Baker, the five kids along with members of staff walked from the Mill Road nursery to the town’s Methodist Church, where the children, one by one, took each item out of the boxes before giving it to the church's volunteers on Wednesday, October 3.

All the food and drink will be donated to the One Can Food Bank Trust who are based in High Wycombe.

Manager and lead practitioner Susan Campbell-Baker told the Bucks Free Press: "We went out in the morning to donate all the food and the children absolutely loved it. They couldn't get enough of it.

"It wasn't a long walk from the nursery to the church and when we arrived, the children made it into a game of who can give the donations the quickest to the volunteers.

"It was great to see that they really enjoyed wanting to help those who are less fortunate and their parents were very supportive.

"It was a good day for the children."

In total, two plastic boxes were filled with items, with all the children having a shoebox each.

Each of their shoeboxes was filled to the top with goods to give to the charity.

Additionally, it was the first year that the nursery decided to donate food to the One Can Food Bank Trust, after regularly giving items to the town's Age Concern branch.

However, even though they didn't give necessities to Age Concern this autumn, Susan confirmed that the children will visit the Glade Road charity this Christmas by spending time with the pensioners, giving them mince pies and by singing carols.

Susan then added: "It will be good to do another donation as it'll be good for the children to remember that helping those who need it the most is important.

"They also really enjoyed the walk and physically taking out each item of food in the boxes, so we can't wait for the next one.

Items such as fruit, vegetables, soup, water, chocolate, and other tin goods were just some that were donated to the charity.
