The Year 1 Heathridge students collected new pyjamas, toiletries, books and library bags for children aged one to 14 and donated them to The Spiers Centre bedtime bundle project last week.

Year 1 teacher Dagmar Cooper said the whole school joined in the appeal.

The students collected and sorted 573 items, presenting them to The Spiers Centre’s Tina Bennett at a special assembly.

‘I was delighted with the enthusiasm and generosity of our students and staff,’ Mrs Cooper said.

‘The children in my class were eager to help children their age and realised how lucky they were to have all these items in their own homes.’
