Fenland school’s students collect gift boxes to help spread festive cheer

Students at a Fenland school collected 60 boxes of goodies to help spread some festive cheer this Christmas.

Chatteris’ Cromwell Community College trio Tara Chappell, Sharon Howell and Heather Reeve - with the help of geography teacher Chordess Harris - gathered the haul in aid of Operation Christmas Child.

Gift-packed boxes, containing presents such as toothbrushes, books and playing cards, were sent to the charity which hands them out to less fortunate members of the public who may not receive presents on December 25.
