Christmas all wrapped up
7:00pm Tuesday 25th December 2012 in Ilminster
CHILDREN at Greenfylde First School have been thanked for once again supporting the annual Shoebox Appeal.
Thousands of shoeboxes from around the area have been crammed with gifts and will be going to children in poorer countries in Europe in time for Christmas.
The pupils at Greenfylde School collected 147 boxes.
Headteacher John Jeffery said: “That means 147 children will have a much better Christmas than otherwise could have been hoped for. We really do appreciate the efforts in getting these boxes together and helping improve the life of a needy child.”
The Greenfylde choir sang in the Minister Church in Ilminster at the special Shoebox Service, which was well attended by the community.
