Hundreds of essential items have been donated to a food bank after a great response to a Kettering school's collection appeal.

Pupils at Brambleside Primary School in Cleveland Avenue have been learning about Christmas and the origins of exchanging gifts.

And with this in mind the school invited people to get involved in giving and kindness by supporting Kettering Foodbank, helping families in need over the Christmas.

"It is important that our children understand how they can contribute to the community and make a positive difference for others.
