PUPILS at Trinity Primary School in Portishead joined Operation Christmas Child to help spread some joy.

The charity community group at the school organised a school wide collection of shoe boxes filled with gifts that will be sent to children in need around the world, who would not otherwise be receiving gifts during the festive season. The project is organised by Samaritan’s Purse, an international relief and development organisation that works with 18 different countries across Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
