GENEROUS pupils at Woodkirk Academy have been showing their support to our troops in Afghanistan.
The school have been collecting goods to parcel up and send to soldiers that are away from home throughout the Christmas period. These include staff member Katie Hall’s brother, Gareth, who is serving with the 5th Regiment Royal Artillery until March next year.
Pupils and staff were asked to fill shoeboxes which will be sent to Gareth. On Christmas morning he will dress up in a red suit to become Father Christmas and distribute the parcels to the rest of the soldiers on his base.
