KIND-HEARTED pupils have helped brighten Christmas for some of the poorest children in the world.

Some 99 shoeboxes filled with gifts and goodies were collected by pupils at Dunmow St Mary's Primary School, which acted as one of many local collection points for the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child appeal.

Operation Christmas Child is the world's largest children's Christmas project, a Christian relief initiative to help communities in need in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
