MORE than 100 food hampers were delivered to the elderly and needy by students and staff from Worthing High.

They made the hampers for residents and clients of Worthing Churches Homelessness Project, Abbeyfield Worthing Assisted Living, Gainsborough Lodge and St Barnabas Hospice.

Lottie Erratt-Rose, one of the pupils involved, said: “Delivering the hampers was really fun.

“Seeing the people’s faces when we arrived was something really special.

“I think it’s brilliant that our school does this at Christmas time, because everybody deserves to be happy at Christmas.

“It is important that our school does this, because it gives us the opportunity to be kind and charitable.”

Isabelle Osmond said: “The elderly residents seemed so excited when they first received the hampers. Everyone at the school had made for them.

“All their faces lit up.”

Roberta Young, the charity lead teacher at Worthing High School, said: “Thank you to all students, staff and parents who helped contribute to the hampers.”
