Pupils coordinate Christmas shoe box gifts for local families

A group of Vale pupils have come together to create gift filled shoe boxes for local families in need this Christmas.

In previous years here at Darwen Vale similar projects have been coordinated as part of a national appeal for children overseas, however this year the students decided to concentrate their efforts closer to home.

Pupils across the school donated items to go in the boxes, which have now been delivered and gratefully received and will be with some of our borough’s most needy families by Christmas Day.

Special thanks to Melissa Jones and the following pupils who put in a lot of effort to make this happen.
