A charitable church in Market Weighton has collected a bumper crop of food donations for charity.

St John’s Methodist Church in Market Weighton held its Harvest Festival last Sunday, which about 70 people attended.

A variety of tinned and packaged food products were donated by visitors to the church, which will be given to the Salvation Army.

The Methodist Church holds a Harvest Festival every year and this year’s event was a ‘scarecrow special’, with several scarecrows on display inside the church, including one of Liam Payne from One Direction, made by from the Market Weighton Youth Cafe.

Reverend Sue Peg, from the Methodist Church, said: “There were lots of young people as well as older people.

“All the tinned food is going to the Hull Salvation hospital for the homeless.”

Next week, Market Weighton Infant School will be collecting food which it will donate to the Methodist Church’s collection.
