The spirit of a competitive Christmas was captured by pupils at Hemel Hempstead’s Cavendish School as they designed, made and then filled hampers destined for distribution by the town branch of the Age Concern charity.
As part of a inter house competition nearly 40 hampers were produced by students in Years 7 to 11.
Each hamper was designed with a Christmas theme and filled with a variety of food items.
Sixth form students and members of staff then loaded up the mini bus and hand- delivered the hampers, singing Christmas carols as they did so..
Danny Allen, head of the school’s Bragg House, said: “Many students have put a lot of time and effort into making and filling the hampers, the elderly cllients at Age Concern were very grateful for the gifts as well as the time the sixth form students happily spent with them”
