|School sends over £1,000
to Send a Cow
Harvest festivals at Helmdon Primary School and Helmdon
Church have helped to raise money for an organisation that
helps people become self-sufficient.
After the two harvest festivals the goods taken were auctioned
off and the money, which totalled £1,245.76, will
be sent to Send a Cow. The organisation provides families
with a cow so that when the first calf is born they pass
the calf to another family. The work has been going on in
Uganda but is now spreading to other countries.
A cheque was presented, from the school and residents in
Helmdon, Syresham, Whitfield and Radstone, to Sandra Herbert,
a representative of the organisation, in an assembly on
Monday 15 October.
