THE Wells family from Thornlie will receive Christmas gift packs containing toys and books thanks to the Smith Family.

Sisters Kelly-Lee and Sophie Wells have received educational support from the Smith Family and their school, Yale Primary in Thornlie, throughout the year.

They participate in reading over the phone and receive tuition at their school.

During the year, the Smith Family asks people to donate toys and books to any of their stores in Perth.

The toys and books are then made into packs and distributed to disadvantaged families across the State.

In the Gosnells area alone, nearly 350 students will receive the packs.

The girls’ mother, Linda Wells, said the educational support throughout the year had helped the girls out immensely.

“It has been brilliant because it actually helps in their reading, writing and confidence,” she said.
