Pupils at Offwell Primary School have decided to make Honiton’s food bank their chosen charity.
The youngsters, who are part of the school’s recently-elected council, voted to donate the gifts given for harvest to the bank, based in the King’s Centre, off High Street.
Although the vote went towards a local charity, some council members thought it would be good to support people overseas and they agreed to discuss this option further at another meeting.
Mrs Hunt, the teacher who leads the council meetings, said: “I was impressed with the democratic decision making and consideration exhibited by all the councillors from age four to 11.
“We had a very busy agenda, but they took all the issues seriously.”
