School gets busy stacking up some Christmas cheer.
Youngsters at St Christopher's Primary School, in Allesley Old Road, Allesley, have collected food at their harvest assembly ready for distribution.
Fresh food is being delivered to local care homes, while the rest will make up about 300 food parcels handed to elderly people at Christmas time.
Sandra Williams, advocacy manager at Age Concern, which is delivering the food, said: "Many people living on their own will not have Christmas presents and in many cases this will be the only present they receive.
"This school has been tremendously supportive and we've had a great response from other schools too. It's good that the children know how much this means to some people."
