PUPILS at Christ the King Primary in Holytown have been spreading a little goodwill to those less fortunate in poverty-stricken parts of the world.

Primary 5 children led the school’s backpack appeal for the Mary’s Meals charity during Advent as part of their preparation for Christmas which focused on giving to others.

The children were delighted with the response from parents, friends and family who managed to fill around 48 backpacks with basic educational resources which will be sent to children in other countries.

The children then helped to load the backpacks and four boxes of additional clothing, toiletries and stationery into the Mary’s Meals collection van.
