YOUNGSTERS at Horsley Woodhouse Primary School have been busy filling shoeboxes for this year’s Operation Christmas Child Project.
The Samaritans-run scheme sees pupils fill them with things like toiletries, colouring books and toys to send to less fortunate children abroad.
The Horsley Woodhouse youngsters then labelled their boxes as suitable for either a boy or a girl, wrapped them in Christmas paper and they were then shipped around the world by the Samaritans.
Headteacher Hilary Shipley said: “This time of year children are often thinking about want they for Christmas. But this encourages them to think of children that are a little less fortunate than themselves.”
