Pupils from Jerwoods at Oakham School have been busy collecting gifts for less fortunate children, as part of the Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child shoebox scheme.

Children were encouraged to spend their money on small toys, craft items, toiletries, and woolly hats and scarves, which will be sent to Eastern Europe in aid of the appeal.

Housemistress Helen Foster said: “The girls tried to be as inventive as possible to make their money stretch to lots of fun items.”
