Charitable students in Holbeach and Long Sutton 25 years ago

Students from two schools were helping a scheme sending supplies to disaster-stricken areas in 1996.

East Elloe Rotary Club bought two water purifying boxes to send to those in need and they asked the two secondary school to fill them with necessities.

A tutor group from George Farmer School (now University Academy Holbeach) collected items such as toiletries, small tools, bedding and clothes.

And at the Peele School (now University Academy Long Sutton), students raised cash through a sponsored football competition and then bought supplies.
