PUPILS at a Scarborough school have chosen to help the Rainbow Centre by donating goods received through their annual harvest festival appeal.

The charity was chosen because of the work the Castle Road centre does to provide practical and spiritual support to the needy in the Castle Ward and further afield.

David Read, the headteacher at Scalby School, said: “I am overwhelmed at the generosity shown by our parents, students and staff to the appeal for tinned and packet food and toiletries, in support the excellent work of the Rainbow Centre.”

Kath Baggallay, the year 7 learning manager, said, “The Rainbow Centre is just the sort of community project that year 7 want to support. Yesterday Trish Kinsella from the Centre spoke in assembly and explained to the children how they help local people in need.”
