Head Girl Georgina reports, “This year for Harvest Festival, the prefects decided that as a school we would support the Number 5 Project, a direct access night shelter in Guildford for men and women. The Project’s aim is to provide their guests with a hot nutritious meal in the evenings, a warm shower and clean change of clothes, a bed for the night, and breakfast in the morning.
On Friday, we had our Harvest Festival collection and were overwhelmed by the number of girls who got involved and brought in items for this worthy cause. We were also astounded by the generosity of many of you who donated huge crates of items. On behalf of the prefect team and The Number 5 Project, I would like to thank you all for your support. It is amazing how much we can do as a school to help others.”
Ms Troup reports, “Staff at the shelter said that Prior’s Field had provided enough tins to keep them going until Christmas!”
