Old Buckenham students hand over Christmas hampers to charity

A charity that helps homeless people in Norwich and Norfolk has been boosted following a donation of Christmas boxes from Old Buckenham High School pupils.

Pupils were encouraged to bring in non-perishable foods and decorate their hamper, which will go to the St Martin's Homeless Housing Charity that has a night shelter in Norwich.

'Pupils have been more creative than ever, with some boxes even decorated with bows, bells and flashing Christmas lights,' said teacher Chrissie Smith, who had organised the collection, with the support of the school council.

The hampers were loaded up for delivery on Saturday.
