Old Buckenham High School students have brought some festive cheer to homeless people in Norwich with their annual hamper collection.

Every year for the last 25 years, students at the school have organised hampers of food for St Martins Housing Trust which provides accommodation for people who have been made homeless during the year to help them get back on their feet.

Each class collects donations of food from its students before decorating them to enter into a competition.

This year there were more donations than ever, and the creativity of the students shone through with the winning hamper, produced by Class 10T, which featured a whole village scene made from packets of cereals on top of a raft filled with other food items.

Derek Player, general manager at St Martins said: “The food hamper donation from Old Buckenham High School has become a Christmas tradition for us. The effort that the pupils put into decorating the hampers has been terrific. We will quickly re-cycle the donation to many of the people that we have helped this year.”
