CHILDREN from St Teresa's School in Princes Risborough helped pack up Christmas boxes for children in Bosnia.

Six pupils were given the chance to go to the Operation Christmas Child's distribution warehouse in Thame, due to the school's long connection with the charity.

They took with them 90 filled shoe boxes for the appeal all of which had been donated by parents, children and staff.

Each box contained such things as toys, colouring pencils, hat, gloves, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and maybe some sweets.

The children were able to assist with filling boxes, checking the contents and sealing them, ready for dispatch by lorry to Bosnia.
