Parishioners have donated a range of produce to support a campaign we are backing to help end hunger in Africa.

St Mary’s Church in Haughley has used money raised from its harvest service and activities to back Give Hunger the Boot, a fundraising appeal from Farm Africa for the past 10 years.

On Sunday, parishioners brought fresh produce and tinned food for the harvest service. The church’s rector, the Rev David Swales, said: “We’ve supported Farm Africa because we feel we’re helping to send real skills to Africa that play a long-term role in improving agriculture and ending hunger.”

Money collected at the service and proceeds from an auction of the fresh produce will go to Farm Africa.
