STUDENTS at Bristol Brunel Academy decided to do their bit to help homeless people in the city over the festive season.

They collected  so many cereals, drinks, custard, coffee, sugar, biscuits, chocolates and other goodies that they needed two minibuses to transport it to Caring at Christmas.

The shelter is run by the Julian Trust and others to provide accommodation, food, medical services and entertainment. It was open from Christmas Eve until New Year's Day and was expecting to serve  about 500 hot meals per day.

Katherine Hawke, teacher of Humanities who organised this, said: “Our students and their families have done brilliantly in collecting this amount of food for such a worthy cause. It is important that we raise the awareness of this charity to our students and the brilliant work it carries out each year.”
