A primary school in Ashington has responded to a plea from one of their own, when the grandparents of one pupil asked for help after taking refugees into their home in Poland.
Local pizza shop, Sorrentos Pizzaria, agreed to collect donations on behalf of the Polish Catholic Church, and St Aidan’s Catholic Primary School, a member of the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust, agreed to support them.
"Pupils and parents responded immediately with donations of medical supplies, clothing, food, games, toiletries, sanitary products and nappies," said headteacher Michael Moran.
"Within a matter of days our school had sent two transit vans full of donations to the Polish Centre in Newcastle, where they were sorted before being taken to refugees in Poland. More journey’s with the transit van have followed since as the donations continue to roll in."
