Budleigh Salterton school pupils and their families have benefited from the kindness of grandparents who are unable to see their families due to coronavirus.

Grandparents donated Lego, Marble Run games, K’Nex, Hot Wheels, a Furby and Easter eggs to the health and wellbeing hub in Budleigh.

These were then distributed to children from St Peter’s Primary School and their families.

Budleigh’s Co-op and Tesco shops also donated more than 150 Easter eggs, which were distributed to elderly residents who are self-isolating, and key workers.

Marc Jobson, manager of the health and wellbeing hub, said: “The kindness people are showing at this time is truly amazing.

“We are helping lots of residents in the area who may be self-isolating or are following guidance by staying safe at home, through our volunteering service – the Easter eggs are a welcome surprise to those who receive them.”
