We are extremely grateful for all the support we have received over the years from all members of the community at harvest time bringing in vital food supplies that last the entire year!
Changes at SPEAR
Since last harvest we are proud that our services have expanded with our services being utilised in new Boroughs and this has meant transforming some of our spaces from storage to workspaces for front line workers.
Therefore we are very sorry to say that currently we do not currently have the capacity to accept Harvest Festival donations from schools.
We appreciate that this may be disappointing for schools who have so faithfully supported us for Harvest Festival. We hope that we can still work together over the coming academic year supporting both our clients and your pupils in awareness raising activities.
If you need somewhere to donate harvest goods, one suggestion is the local Foodbank. Details can be found on their website. Please do contact them first to arrange this.
We still value partnering with you and hope that we can help raise awareness of homelessness with pupils, and give them the opportunity to address it
There are lots of alternative ways to support SPEAR. helping both our clients and meaningfully engaging students.
Here are a few ideas. to what you can do instead of donating food:
