A primary school in West Cumbria have teamed up with Copeland Age and Advice Service (CAAS) to deliver presents to the elderly.

St Patrick's Primary School in Cleator Moor have teamed up with CAAS with the aim of spreading Christmas cheer.

They are looking from contributions from parents and the community to help the initiative to be as successful as possible.

A spokesperson from St Patrick's School said: "As part of putting our Living and Learning statement into action, this Christmas, again we have teamed up with 'Copeland Age and Advice Service,' a charity that supports the older generation in our area, to spread some Christmas cheer to those who may be lonely or facing difficulty this year. Last year they really appreciated our contributions."

Pupils at the school have already started making Christmas cards and they are going to be making small sweet hampers to send to people.

Because of this the staff are currently looking for donations of sweets and chocolates that they can use to put the hampers together.

A spokesperson added: "We would really appreciate contributions of chocolate/ sweets towards the gifts we are making - these can be dropped at the school office or sent in with your child.

"We feel incredibly lucky to be part of your children's lives and part of the community of Cleator Moor, and we are looking forward to working together to help others. As always thank you for your continued support."
