Pupils at Radwinter Primary School supported Uttlesford Foodbank this year by organising a reverse advent calendar.

Staff were overwhelmed by the generosity of families who donated many items.

These were delivered to the foodbank in time to help them with Christmas parcels.

A school spokesman said: “This venture was the children’s idea – they wanted to help make a difference at Christmas and support a worthy cause. They were thrilled to see the boxes laden with food as they were dispatched!”
