PUPILS from Grays Convent school handed more than 30 Christmas hampers over to St Thomas of Canterbury Church and the Salvation Army.

The beautifully decorated bundles containing food and drink will now be distributed to those most in need in the community over the Christmas period.

A hamper was donated from each form at the College Avenue school.

Deputy head teacher Gareth Williams said: "A big thank you on behalf of the school to all our pupils and parents who donated lovely food and drinks and made the hampers so attractive."

Rocket1, put a sock in it. These kids deserve praise for raising money for charity.

Well done them!

This is so lovely - a great thing for the school and youngsters to do. May they be truly blessed.

The village of Hullbridge is supported well too in this respect, in that the Council gives a hamper to all those over the age of 80!

This would be good for Thurrock too.

Rocket1 Give these kids a break. Society is too self obsessed with a 'me me me' culture. Children need to be aware of the needs of others less fortunate.

Well done the children at the Convent!

Marcus P, it must be Christmas...for once I actually agree with you!

However, I bet Nobby & Nobby (Michael Gove & Michael Wilshire) don't! They will both be horrified that 'learning time' is being completely wasted and A* - C GCSEs will be ultimately affected, by this compassionate stunt, that can only 'hamper' the relentless quest for qualifications!

Rocket 1's play on words, was an attempt at a joke! Alas, he/she forgot the first rule of comedy...be funny!
