Clothes and cans for the Syria and Iraq Crisis Appeal were presented to church leaders at a special assembly at Axminster Community Primary Academy.
The head boy and head girl and their deputies raised £93.98 for the charity, while Carole Enticott and her daughter kindly made and donated baby blankets.
Last week, the school invited Simon Byworth and the Reverend Simon d’Albertanson, from the Axminster Church Community, to receive the donations.
Mr Byworth updated the academy on the progress of the appeal and thanked them for their contributions.
The academy’s head boy said: “We wanted to make a difference and help the refugees.

“We want a happy world when we are kind to each other and help each other in times of need.”
The head girl added: “We raised funds as we wanted to help people who had fled their homes and they needed things like blankets and clothes, things we take for granted.”
