YOUNGSTERS donated hundreds of ring-pulls and empty toothpaste tubes as well as wellies, clothes, pens and pencils to support schoolchildren in the poorest slums of Manila.
Youngsters at St Swithun’s Catholic Primary in Southsea handed over their collection to Jane Walker – founder of the Philippine Community Fund – who famously built a school out of 72 converted shipping containers.
Anne Jones, the headteacher at St Swithun’s, said: ‘What the charity has achieved is amazing and our children were thrilled to hand over hundreds of recycled goods, clothes and food.
‘I hope other schools in the city support them.’
