Christmas all wrapped up

Redditch Editorial 5th Dec, 2014 Updated: 18th Oct, 2016

A REDDITCH school has Christmas all wrapped up for disadvantaged children.

Children from St Bede’s Catholic Middle School have collected more than 160 festive shoeboxes which will be sent to more than 100 million children across the globe as part of Operation Christmas Child.

The project, which is run by Samaritan’s Purse, sends the special packages which can include toys, books, pens and hairbrushes to children living in countries such as Kenya, Romania and Serbia, who can not afford Christmas presents.
