When the weather started to get chillier, the children at Scott Primary School in Brickhill wanted to help those in need.
The School Council, made up of children from each class, regularly meet to discuss ideas on how they can help not only their school, but also the community.
As winter had arrived, the children were all conscious they needed to remember their coats so they could go outside to play. This got them thinking about those who may be not be able to wrap up warm.
The youngsters decided they wanted to help those who are homeless and would be feeling the cold during the long winter months.
Together with their teachers, they put together a request to all parents to ask them to donate good, clean and wearable clothes including coats, hats and scarves for adults.
They were overwhelmed with the response and were delighted to deliver over 15 bags full of clothes to the SMART Prebend Centre.
Headteacher Anita Barker said, “We were so pleased with the response from our parents to our plea.
“Our School Council work very hard to help others whether it is with initiatives in our community, particularly those in need, or how they can improve things within our school.
“They are very enthusiastic with how we can improve our green credentials and help with spreading the message with all our children. I am so proud at how hard they work and their kind and caring attitude.”
