STUDENTS from the Stourport High School and VIth Form College have collected more than 130 Christmas hampers to donate elderly residents in the local area.

Each year, the students from the Minster Road school donate items for the hampers.

The students got creative with different designs on the hampers including a post van, fireplace, giant pie and gingerbread house.

Students and staff delivered the hampers full of festive goodies on December 14, to the elderly who live in the town. Coniston Coaches donated a coach and driver to help deliver the presents.

Headteacher Lorna Deakin said: "It is important for our students to take part in activities such as this and by doing so we hope that our young people will have a better appreciation and respect for their local community while developing and growing into well-rounded individuals.

"We are incredibly proud of all of our students."
