Childcare students at South Devon High School have been supporting local charities this Christmas.
Students, teachers and families, worked hard to gather donations to support RE4orm and PATH Torbay, donating 214 presents.
The school, part of South Devon College, has also donated food parcels and essential gifts to support the homeless in collaboration with PATH Shoe Box appeal.
Student Shakira Mead said: “I wanted to help the children and families at Christmas because I feel it’s easy for me and many others to take what we have for granted.
“When there are people struggling who won’t have anything for Christmas, it makes me so sad but also makes me want to do what I can so that they can celebrate Christmas just as much as me and my family do.”
Lecturer Pamela Bowman said: “We are so passionate about supporting these children and their families that we have teamed up with charities such as RE4orm to deliver food parcels during the holidays.”
