Pupils from Laleham Lea School in Purley have lovingly filled over 60 shoe boxes with gifts and treats for those in need around the world this Christmas.
The boxes have been donated to Operation Christmas Child, a project run by international Christian relief organisation the Samaritan’s Purse.
Since 1990, more than 178 million children in more than 150 countries have received an Operation Christmas Child shoebox. For many of these children, the gift‑filled shoebox is the first gift they have ever received.
Ms Barry, Head teacher at Laleham Lea said: “Laleham Lea students and their families are always very generous throughout the year in supporting and giving to those in need.”
“We are delighted to once again support Operation Christmas Child this year; I know the students have enjoyed filling and wrapping their special gifts with care and love. Some students have even brought in two or three boxes! We hope they make for a lovely surprise Christmas gift for those children who really need it.”
