Students and staff at Cromwell Community College packed shoeboxes with soft toys, gloves, toiletries, games, books and stationery as part of Operation Christmas Child.

Christmas cards were also written to accompany the boxes, which were filled to aid the national appeal.

Lou Allen, charity coordinator for Cromwell, said: “I am delighted with the 46 boxes we have collected.

“We have delivered them to Chatteris Parish Church where they will be collected for delivery to needy children all over the world.”
