Braintree: Children fill shoeboxes for Christmas
11:00am Sunday 9th December 2012 in News
Schoolchildren filled shoeboxes with gifts and toys for children across the world.
Year 9 students Rachele Lipede, Charlee Lloyd and Lewis French have been collecting items for Operation Christmas Child run by the charity Samaritan’s Purse.
Tabor Science College pupils donated items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, soap, hats, gloves, scarves and stationery to fill the boxes.
The Year 9 students also ran a cake sale which raised more than £30 for the charity.
