PUPILS at Tiree high school have do­nated hun­dreds of books to a char­ity that sup­ports a school in ru­ral Kenya.

Af­ter im­ple­ment­ing a new read­ing scheme last year, pupils in Tiree were left with an abun­dance of ‘old’ books that were tak­ing up space.

How­ever, although they were no longer needed on the is­land, the pupils un­der­stood that the books were still of value.

Af­ter speak­ing to Free 2 Be, a char­ity based in South York­shire that helps Khaoya School in Kenya, all that was left was to find trans­porta­tion.

The pupils made an ap­peal on so­cial me­dia and were very grate­ful to Mr Adrian Pope, who of­fered his ser­vices.

The books will be added to a con­tainer filled with cloth­ing, tools and other goods that will be shipped to Kenya later this month.
