Help for HARP

Starting this week, four Year 6 boys are supporting HARP, Southend’s Homeless Charity, by collecting food donations at school. We discussed the wish list that HARP publish on their website and the boys identified three items that could be collected every fortnight from families in the school. The table below shows which donation items the boys are asking for.


19th – 28th March

Water, tinned meat & baked beans

16th April – 27th April 

Fruit squash, tinned vegetables & cup-a-soups

30th April – 11th May

UHT, tinned meals e.g. curry, chilli etc & microwave rice

14th – 25th May

Cans/cartons of soft drink, tinned fish & tinned new potatoes

4th – 14th June

Fruit juice, tinned fruit & multipacks of crisps

19th – 29th June

Snack chocolate bars, water & curry/Bolognese/chilli sauce


They will collect from the classes daily and we will keep the community updated with how we are doing via the website, Facebook and the newsletter. On behalf of the boys, we thank you in advance for your generosity.
