Pupils at Barkston and Syston Primary School have been collecting shoesboxes full of gifts for the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child Appeal.

Leaders of the school council Cara Aldenhoff-Kelly, Jason Reah and Mitchell Smith helped take the shoeboxes to the depot where they will be packed and sent to needy children in Serbia.

The children learned that the shoeboxes make three smiles - one from the child who gives it, one from the child who receives it and one from the carer of the child who receives it.
