Pupils made Christmas hampers to donate to the elderly.

Bourne Academy held its annual inter-house hamper contest once again this year. Each of the school’s 54 forms began with a cardboard box and were asked to decorate it and fill it with food and gifts. The boxes were then taken to the Butterfield Centre to be handed out to residents.

Co-ordinator Amy Angell said: “It’s hard to believe looking at the finished decorated hampers that they started out as plain cardboard boxes. The students worked very hard as tutor groups to produce and make such magnificent hampers and to provide the contents.”
