PUPILS at a village primary school have donated boxes of toiletries to a charity which helps out homeless people.

Students at the Bliss Charity School in Nether Heyford have collected several boxes full of shampoo, soap and razors.

These items will now be donated to the Northampton Association for the Accommodation of Single Homeless (NAASH). The charity aims to prevent and relieve hardship among people who are homeless and to educate the public concerning homelessness.

A staff member and client from the charity was invited to the school in October to teach the students about the work of the organisation and how the children could help.

The pupils were told that one of the main things the residents need are toiletries to provide for basic hygiene requirements. A school-wide collection was then organised.
