Spire Nursery and Infant School hosted a non-uniform day for pupils earlier this month in exchange for donations for the harvest festival season.

The school said it had an ‘amazing response’ and was able to collect a ‘huge amount' of food in aid of Gussie’s Kitchen, a community project based at St Augustine’s Church on Derby Road in Chesterfield.

Pupils visited the volunteer-run initiative on Friday, October 22, to drop off the donations which will now be used to help feed households in the area during uncertain times.
