CHILDREN at Ramsey Spinning Infants are hoping to send 100 boxes this year to poor children across the world.
Last year, youngsters in Britain helped send 1.8million shoe boxes packed with toys, toothpaste and soap to children in 13 countries. The children will be in hospitals, orphanages, refugee camps or homeless shelters.
This year, pupils at the Spinning Infants will be able to see a DVD of some of the children opening their parcels.
Headteacher, Margaret Mumby said: "We will be packing our boxes until we take them to a special church service at Ramsey Methodist Church on Sunday, November 26.

"Operation Christmas Child asks for toys and gifts for three age groups, two to four, five to nine and 10 to 14, for either a boy or a girl. They suggest cuddly toys, puzzles and crayons, also soap, flannels and toothbrushes or jewellery for the girls. You can put in sweets but not chocolate and they ask you not to put in anything war related like toy guns.
"You can also put in a picture of yourself and a card and I think a lot of our children have done that."
