Kingsmead Day Nursery’s bumper harvest supports community


Children at Kingsmead Day Nursery in Winchester have shown their support for people in need in their local community by donating and delivering more than 150 items at its Harvest Festival event.

A bumper harvest hamper of tinned and packet food, fruit juice and cleaning products has been handed to Winchester Basics Bank, an emergency food and clothing service for people who are facing difficulties following unexpected events in their lives.

Kingsmead Day Nursery, based in Gordon Road, Winchester, launched the harvest festival donation station in August to teach the children about the importance of giving and helping those less fortunate in the community.

Emily Hancock, Managing Director at Kingsmead Day Nursery, said: “We are delighted to have received such a generous and positive response from the children, parents and guardians to our Harvest Festival appeal for donations.

“We see Harvest as a time for giving thanks and decided to host our own harvest festival to support Winchester Basics Bank with their fantastic work in our local community helping those in need.

“Two of this nursery’s key values are Kindness and Respect, so it’s really important to us to teach the children to be friendly, generous and considerate of other people.”
