EXMOUTH Community College Post 16 students gift filled 75 shoeboxes for children in Moldova, Eastern Europe.

This is the second year the students have taken part in the Christian Response to Eastern Europe (CR2EE) project.

David Wright, Head of Post 16 at the college said; "The boxes were filled with things that children in these countries would find a luxury. Things like soaps, toothpaste, hats, scarves, gloves.

"Even school stationary is in short supply over there, so we sent along crayons, notebooks, pens and things like that."

The boxes were packed up and sent over to a collection point in Budleigh Salterton.
