A charitable Portishead pupil from a school has been collecting old school clothes to send to Zimbabwe.
Kimberley Phiri, a year 11 student at Gordano School, realised the school’s new uniform change meant a lot of the old clothes were no longer needed.
She decided to set up a recycling service so students can donate their old jumpers, shirts and ties.
All the clothes donated will be sent to a school in Zimbabwe where children are in need of uniform.
Simon Faulkner, head of the house Kimberley belongs to, said: “Kimberley is always looking to help those in need and is full of wonderful ideas that will help her to achieve that.”

Uniforms can be dropped off at the school’s main reception in St Mary’s Road, until 4pm on November 27.
Clothes must be suitable for 11-16-year-olds and be in a good condition.

Once donated, volunteers from the London UAC Church will deliver the items to young students in Sachiwe School.
Kimberley said: “This is a great way to make good use of old uniforms. If you don’t donate they may well sit in the back of your wardrobe collecting dust.”
