A GROUP of Year 11 pupils from Callington Community College prepared 35 Christmas boxes for families in need over the festive period.
The pupils are studying for a Community Volunteering Qualification (CVQ) with teachers Kerrie Oakes and Hazel Bennum and as part of their work collected items such as pre-packed foods, toys, books and games.

Coordinated by Sarah Treliving (Year 11), yhey had meetings with Callington Lions Club which resulted in an excellent response on 1st December from the whole college. Student and staff brought in a variety of food, toys, Christmas items and drinks for disadvantaged families. From these items the CVQ students created thirty-six Christmas hampers with great skill and care. This included creating wrapping paper with their own unique print, cut out from potatoes. The hampers will be disributed by health visitors to families in need in the Callington area. Ken Aspinall from the Lions Club of Callington wored closely with the students to organise the project. In centre Ken Aspinall & Andy Burnard from Callington Lions with Teachers & Stedents from Callington College.
THINKING OF OTHERS: Lions Ken Aspinall and Andy Burnard collect the boxes from Year 11 pupils and their teachers.
They decorated the boxes before Callington Lions Club collected them and took them to the community health centre for distribution.
