Kind-hearted students at Lealands High School have been busy filling seven shoeboxes with toys, books, crayons and toiletries for Operation Christmas Child.
Organiser Kerry Feane said “This project was a great reminder that Christmas isn’t just about what presents they ask for, but also what they can give to help others.”
OCC is run by the charity Samaritan’s Pures and is the UK’s largest Christmas appeal. Since it started in 1990, more than 113 million underprivileged children in over 130 countries have received a shoebox filled with gifts which have been lovingly wrapped and packed.
