Big hearted pupils have donated 100 pairs of shoes and uniform to children in Africa.

The students at East Huntspill Primary Academy, West Huntspill Primary Academy and Pawlett Primary School Academy near Burnham on Sea and Bridgwater in Somerset, have collected them over the term.

The Kenyan girls at Jolaurabi School are now wearing the shoes and uniforms.
