Speaking following the handover of the food donations, new Principal Jeff Scott said: “Kilmoyle Primary School have been collecting for Ballymoney Foodbank for Harvest. The past few years have been very difficult for a number of families, meaning charities like Foodbank have become an even more important help to those families in need.

“COVID-19 has also meant that at Kilmoyle Primary School they have not been able to celebrate harvest in the normal way but that has not stopped the generosity of this school community.
