STAFF at a Sheffield school were ‘overwhelmed’ by donations from pupils to this year’s harvest festival.

Chris Marriott, from the Jubilee Food Bank, off Ecclesall Road, gave an assembly at Birkdale Prep School in Broomhill, telling the boys about different ways to be generous.

A school spokesman said: “He explained there were people here in Sheffield who needed their help and set them a challenge that if they wanted to give to the appeal, they should try to sneak their goods into the crates at the school entrance without anyone noticing.

“This message obviously had a big impact on the boys. One little boy was found trying to sneak his snack into the donation crates.

“We sincerely hope our gifts might make a difference to other families in Sheffield.”
