Amazing Harvest Appeal

Well done to all the families who contributed to Sciennes’ Harvest Appeal led by P3 and Ms Anstruther. Here is a very kind email we received from Ewan at the Edinburgh North West Foodbank:

Many thanks for your help and support this morning as Tom and I collected the remainder of your Harvest Collection. I can confirm that your school has donated an amazing amount of food totalling 372kg, which is by far our biggest collection for any school since we opened in November 2012.  This donation will allow us to feed over 37 individuals or 18 families with a nutritionally balanced food pack supplying at least three meals for three days.  We will confirm this in writing to you soon.

Sasha and Linda will keep you posted with developments of our new Central foodbank and the possibility of the school being further involved in the work of our foodbanks in the future.

We are encouraged when we receive such wonderful support for what we are doing to reduce the impact of food poverty and thank you again for this amazing donation. 

Kind regards,


Ewan Walker | Operations Manager | Edinburgh North West foodbank
