KIND children in Coventry have put together more than 100 Christmas boxes filled with gifts for young people living in some of the world’s poorest countries.
Corpus Christi Catholic Primary School on Langbank Avenue has collected 112 gift boxes for Operation Christmas Child.
The campaign from the charity Samaritan’s Purse asks people to fill shoeboxes with presents which are then sent to children who ordinarily would not receive anything on Christmas morning.
Children, staff and parents filled and wrapped the boxes, which included everything from toys, stationary, hats and gloves and toiletries.
Vice principal Charlotte Miller said: “This year’s appeal has been a huge success, with the whole community getting involved.
“It’s incredible how generous people have been at what can be a very expensive time of the year and demonstrates a true Christmas spirit.”
