SCORES of boxes filled with gifts are on their way to an underprivileged village in Kenya.
Generous people across the area answered an appeal by the Portsmouth branch of The Salvation Army for hand-powered tools, sewing machines, musical instruments and other items for the young people in Kyamutwoi.
The small village, which is twinned with the Portsmouth Citadel, Lake Road, Landport, is desperate for equipment to provide education for under-18s.
The church has so far collected £1,500.
To make a donation send a cheque made payable to The Salvation Army to The Salvation Army Kyamutwoi Polytechnic Appeal, The Haven Community Centre, Lake Road, Portsmouth, PO1 4HA.
