Children help less fortunate at Christmas

Children help less fortunate at Christmas

Children at the Heights Primary School in Caversham have been collecting toys for Toys and Teens Christmas appeal organised by Reading Family Aid. The charity redistributes new or “as new” toys to disadvantaged families who have been nominated by social workers and support organisations across the Reading area.

Headteacher Karen Edwards said: "We talk a lot about caring, sharing and compassion. The children are aware that there are a lot of children in Reading who are not as fortunate as they are. They want to help people who don't have as much as them and the Toys and Teens appeal is a great way for them to do that."

The school’s parents, teachers and friends association has also raised £500 for the charity this year. Toys can be donated at St Barnabas Church in Grove Road, Emmer Green, Caversham library and Caversham Homecrafts, both in Church Street, until Sunday, December 4, For more information, visit Pictured, left to right Rafi Aslam, Emma Wood, Ameya Para Pampati and Fletcher Bramley, all six
