Students’ creations send cheer across city
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.”
