KIND-HEARTED pupils from South Bromsgrove High School have been busy putting together festive hampers to bring some joy to the town’s needy this Christmas.
The packages, created by those in year ten, have been donated to the charity NewStarts for its foodbank.
After choosing to support the local charity, the pupils were given work within lessons to discuss its role of charity and glean information about local charitable organisations.
They selected NewStarts because they were impressed with the work it did to help families in Bromsgrove.
Head of year ten Louise Colley said: “We’ve all been really impressed with the students’ willingness to take part in this scheme and to show compassion towards other people.
“As a year group, these students managed to raise nearly £1,500 in just one hour in a sponsored event last year and now they have shown they can also provide practical help to local people.”
Marion Kenyan, NewStarts’ chief executive, said: “It was absolutely fantastic to get the hampers from South Bromsgrove High School.
“It was great to see young people taking part in the campaign – they are a credit to their school and the town.”
