Pupils at Littletown Primary Academy in Honiton have shown their support for this year’s Shoebox Appeal.

The school has been working with charity Link to Hope, a Christian charity dedicated to rebuilding lives and communities in Eastern Europe by supporting education and social care projects in Romania, Moldova, Ukraine and Bulgaria.

In total, donations helped fill 106 shoeboxes, which have already been sent to youngsters for Christmas.

Claire Nuttall, of Littletown Primary Academy, said: “This was organised by Gillian Sweet and myself.

“We would like to thank all parents, our Parent, Teacher and Friends’ Association, Honiton Tesco and the local traders who helped us this year.

“We have been amazed by everyone’s generosity.”
