A SCHOOL in Royston has collected a number of food parcels for disadvantaged children and families in Eastern Europe.

Pupils from Studlands Rise First School gathered basic foodstuff which will be sent to various churches in Croatia, Serbia, Albania, Romania and Kosovo, and will then be distributed to the needy.

Head teacher Janet Saunders said: "This year we wanted to try a new venture for our special harvest assembly, by supporting the Harvest for the Hungry charity.

"The children know how important projects like this are and we all believe that our participation was extremely worthwhile."

Food parcels contained sugar, long grain rice, plain flour, spaghetti, pasta, pack-ets of biscuits and tins of tomatoes and fruit.
