MORE than 50 pupils at a Barry school engaged in the removal business in an effort to help a charity to serving those in need.
Gladstone primary pupils from Years 2 to 6 celebrated their harvest festival in their usual all-singing, all-dancing, caring, sharing way before preparing a multitude of household items, clothes, books and toys donated by parents and friends of Gladstone all ready to be boxed and sent off to Track 2000.
Track 2000 – helping people in the local community collected the items which ensured the van was the fullest it had been in nine years.
Year 5 children sang We are the World as the van drove off.
Teacher and organiser Sarah Creasey said: “Team Gladstone have done it again. The children performed so beautifully which is a credit to the fantastic staff and our parents gave as generously as ever. The looks on the faces of the Track 2000 staff said it all!”
