Generous Neale-Wade Academy students have packed shoeboxes full of toys and gifts to be sent to the less fortunate.
They are taking part in Operation Christmas Child, a Samaritan’s Purse project which gets schools and community groups to donate shoeboxes for children in poorer countries.
Year 7 pupil Grace Howe said: “This project keeps the Christmas spirit alive by giving a gift to a child that would have not had a Christmas without this support.
“By contributing to this project, we know that we have supported and changed the life of a young person.”
Teachers Charlotte Hockin and Janice Holdich, who organised the project at the academy, said: “We are so proud of the response from our students.
