Pupils at Glenbervie Primary School have been helping Santa out this week with some extra presents for other boys and girls who might not be as lucky as themselves on 25 December.

The school has been taking part in the Giving Tree Appeal which is organised by Instant Neighbour - a charity which provides support to disadvantaged families in the local area.

The appeal helps to ensure that children in the North East do not go without a Christmas gift.

Now in its 22nd year, the Giving Tree Appeal urges people to add just one more name to the Christmas list in a bid to ensure every child across Aberdeen City and Shire has a gift to open this festive holiday. Dedicated ‘Giving Trees’ were hosted in a number of venues across the area, providing the age and gender of individual children in need.

The appeal finished on Monday (3 December) so the charity could collect and distribute the presents to the vulnerable children of low income families in the area.

Children at Glenbervie Primary School were asked to donate a new Christmas gift specified for a child of a particular gender and age up to 18 years.

The tree at Glenbervie Primary School was crowded by generous gifts from the pupils for children of all different ages.
