Students at Marshland High School were encouraged to think about others that are dealing with some sort of hardship by creating food hampers and filling shoe boxes.
Form groups took time to create food hampers for Octavia View and to decorate and fill shoe boxes with toiletries, clothing and small gifts for women and children at a local women’s refuge.
Gainsborough House Leader Debi Benson said: “Once again our students have excelled themselves.
“The focus of course is of giving but we like to add a little healthy competition within the school with an award going to the best decorated food hamper.
“There were many fantastic entries but the winners this year were S4, part of the Shakespeare House with an amazing house hamper.
“It is invaluable for the students to understand how easy it is to make a difference to others just by the simple act of bringing in something small like a tin of beans or some shampoo, little things that we take for granted.
“This is just one of many activities that our students take part in during the school year to raise money for charities such as Cancer Research and Children in Need.”
