Stu­dents’ cre­ations send cheer across city

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

FES­TIVE young­sters have given away dozens of char­ity food parcels to three needy city causes.

Stu­dents from Jack Hunt School, in Westwood, made their gift-giv­ing jour­ney yes­ter­day, do­nat­ing tins and house­hold sup­plies to vul­ner­a­ble older peo­ple in Mill­field as part of Age UK Christ­mastins Ap­peal.

Peter­bor­ough Foyer and the Peter­bor­ough Streets also re­ceived tinned goods tucked in­side Christ­massy cre­ations such as an Olympics ski slope and a gi­gan­tic cracker.

The school has run its tin drive as a ham­per com­pe­ti­tion since 2007, with dozens of tu­tor groups en­ter­ing this Christ­mas.

Com­pe­ti­tion or­gan­iser Kirsty Whit­wood said: “I have been over­whelmed by the en­thu­si­asm, cre­ativ­ity and gen­eros­ity of all stu­dents. “It has been bril­liant to see stu­dents work­ing to­gether to cre­ate and fill the ham­pers and the end re­sults have been fan­tas­tic. They keep get­ting big­ger and bet­ter.”
